Shepherd Group, Porzellanmanufaktur Frankenthal, c. 1760

porcelain (material), h 32.1cm × w 22.2cm. More details

Due to their great success, the figure groups from Meissen were imitated by other porcelain factories. This group was made in Frankenthal (central Germany). The gallant shepherd group has a typically Rococo fanciful background with rocailles (C-shaped scroll ornaments) supported by little columns. The modelling of the figures is somewhat stiffer than that of the group from Meissen.
