About The Artist:

Porcelain, having been discovered by the Chinese long before, became a highly sought after luxury in Europe by the 17th century, with many inventors setting about to discover the secret formula. Success finally came in the early 1700s under the patronage of King Augustus II of Poland, and a factory was established in Meissen, near Dresden, Germany. First introduced in 1720 and consistently used since 1731, the crossed swords mark was originally painted directly on and then later put under the glaze, in order to set apart a Meissen product from the burgeoning competition elsewhere in Europe.

Many fine Rococo figural groups were produced at Meissen in the early to mid 18th century. Later, in the 19th century, some of the original Rococo designs were reproduced or modernized.
