Spring is personified as a putto with a basket of brightly colored flowers in this charming porcelain figure by Meissen. The figure is modeled after the figure created by famed Meissen modeler Johann Joachim, Kändler (1706-1775). His works are considered the most important of the firm's history, and he is noted for his incorporation of robust Rococo motifs that were popular during the 18th century. 

The underside of the figure is marked with the Meissen blue crossed swords, the model number "A.64" and painter number "48."

Meissen: The Allure of Continental Porcelain

Early in the 18th century, Augustus the Strong, elector of Saxony, arrested alchemist Johann Friedrich Bottger and imprisoned him in the town of Meissen; his mission, to discover the secret formula for hard paste porcelain. In 1708 Bottger unlocked the mystery and found the key to both porcelain and his freedom, and by 1718 factories began springing up across Europe fostering an atmosphere of ferocious competition.

By 1720, the Meissen factory was producing wares that eclipsed even the finest Chinese porcelain. They dominated the European market and influenced porcelain production around the world.
