About The Artist:

After Meissen's factory was established in Dresden, Germany, in the early 1700s, many competing factories sprang up in Dresden, some regularly copying the successful Meissen models. Meissen had first produced a monkey band around 1746, modeled by Peter Reinicke and Johann Joachim Kändler. The theme was based on the contemporary aristocratic craze for monkeys involved in human pursuits, called "singeries" after the French word for monkey, "singe", in the 18th century. Meissen itself continued to reproduce this band in the 19th and 20th centuries.
