Each figure in this enchanting Meissen porcelain set beautifully represents one of the Five Senses. First modeled by J.C. Schönheit in 1772, each sense is personified by a seated young woman. Sight is caught in the middle of her toilette, gazing into a mirror. Touch is pecked on the hand by her pet parrot as she takes him from his birdcage. Taste enjoys a delicious meal of fruit, biscuits and wine. Scent holds a fragrant bouquet of flowers to her nose, and Sound plays a tune on her pianoforte. The Five Senses is among the most beloved Meissen sets, and each figure exhibits the magnificent artistry for which this renowned firm is so celebrated.
