Porcelain Pigeonnier - Sculpture
A Rococo-period "Pigeonnier" modeled by Kändler for Meissen, composed of two figures arranged with a birdcage underneath a tall pigeonnier with a ladder. Handpainted porcelain, German, c. mid-18th century.
This is an excellent example of the type of sculpture for which J. J. Kändler (German, 1706-1775) was so famous. He worked at the Meissen Manufactory from 1733 until his death in 1775. His work is found in museums around the world.
