Catalogue Note

The model was originally conceived J. J. Kändler in 1732 for the menagerie of porcelain animals at the Japanese Palace in Dresden, where two still exist in the porcelain collection. See Samuel Wittwer, The Gallery of Meissen Animals, Munich, 2006, pp. 183-184, 333. where the author notes that the amended version of the model was reintroduced by modeller Erich Oehme in 1921.
