Footnotes

  • The group was first modelled by Kaendler in 1736 and subsequently reworked in 1741. In his work notes for July 1741 it says: 'Ein Croppgen den Pantaleon Vorstellend nebst seinen bey sich habenden Frauen Zimmer Völlig erneueret solches aufs Sauberste auspoussiret und aufs neue brauchbar gemacht, Weiln die Forme Vorhero gäntzl. Ruiniret und unbrauchbar worden' [a group depicting Pantalone along with his female figure completely renewed, cleanly remodelled and newly useable, because the old form was completely ruined and had become unusable].

    For a coloured version, see Rainer Rückert, Meissener Porzellan 1710-1810 (1966), no. 863.
