A pair of Meissen Figures of Pied Wagtails circa 1740
Olive, Lady Baillie, Lowndes House, London (dining room), acquired from Maison Jansen, Paris, 29th June 1937
This is a slightly smaller version of the Pied Wagtail modelled in 1733 by Kirchner for the Japanese Palace. Albiker (1935), no. 33, notes that the work records for 1740 show Ehder working on a model of the wagtail, and it seems likely that this smaller version was the model being prepared.
