No swords mark

The small seated up dog on a baroque stool wears the golden initials „M.J.R.P.“ (Maria Josepha Regina Poloniae) on its neckband. The counterpart “The couched dog“ is part of the Collection Pauls-Eisenbeiss. In the archives of the Meissen manufacture we still find the corresponding work reports. The expressive composition is largely limited on white and gold. Only the punchy eyes, the green neckband and the floral pattern of the stool's cushion are colored. The stool might have found its model in the wood work for the royal residence of Kaendlers teacher, the sculptor Thomae, as Menshausen (Menzhausen 1993, p. 38 f.) assumes.
Good. Restoration of the lap.
