set of 12 Meissen "Motto Children" figures


Antique Meissen porcelain complete 12 piece set - "Motto Children" after models by Acier (after drawings by Schoenau).

The "Motto Children" figures were introduced in 1775 by French sculptor Michel Victor Acier (1736 - 1799 ), who helped shape the Manufacture stylistic identity from 1764 and after Kaendler's death ( 1775) he bore sole responsibility for the artistic design of Meissen porcelain.
