This large porcelain group by Meissen epitomizes that beloved firm's mastery of mythological themes. Capturing a bacchante, a follower of Bacchus, making merry with fauns and a satyr who fills her chalice with wine; this magnificent group boasts exceptional color and intricate detailing. In addition to presenting figures of courtly life, Meissen also created figures associated with daily life and mythological tales. This included real people like shepherds, gardeners, venders and other tradesmen, in addition to allegorical representations and personifications of the arts, sciences, elements and Greco-Roman deities. Among the most popular of this latter group were figures representing the Four Seasons and other natural forces. This figure highlights the exceptional skill of Meissen artisans. A very similar figure is featured in Meissen: Collector’s Catalogue by Laurence Mitchell.
