Wenzel Neu was modelmeister at the factory from 1763-67. The figures from the commedia dell’arte are believed to be amongst his earliest creations. The series of ten figures are taken from a set of twelve drawings by Johann Jacob Schübler which had been engraved by Johann Balthasar Probst and published in Augsburg in 1729.
In this figure harlequin is shown delivering a fake love letter to a lovesick Capitano.
