A group of two stags standing by tree stumps on a rocky base with foliage.
The rare porcelain of Würzburg was produced for a short period by Johann Caspar Geyger under the privilege of the Prince-Bishop of Würzburg, Adam Friedrich von Seinshaeim. The detailed moulding and finely extruded foliage is typical of this factory.

Approx. 12.5cm. across
12.3 cm. high
