Bavarian Lion on Pedestal, 4.7" by Nymphenburg Porcelain

Lions have represented the House of Wittelsbach since 1242. Representing courage and valor, many of the lions wield the shield of blue and white oblique diamonds.  The shield also dates back to the same period but evolved to its current appearance in 1950.

Dominikus Auliczek, who succeeded Bustelli as master sculptor at the Manufactory from 1763, attached particular importance to the monumentality of his figures. Coming from the field of large-scale sculpture, his designs are not only larger in terms of size, but are also conceived “in a grand style”. Designed circa 1767.

Dimensions: 2.8" x 3.9" x 4.7"

Delivery time is estimated at 1-5 weeks depending on stock check.
