    The magnificent porcelain figurine "Count Brühl's tailor on a goat" is one of the greatest creations of all the craftsmen of the Meissen factory.
    Johannes Kendler executed it brilliantly: incredible detail, delightful underglaze painting and ingenious parody composition, confirming the manufacturer's highest status as a brand in pursuit of excellence.The Meissen brand corresponds to the period 1860-1924. The model number of the figure in the test is 59, 171.

    Historical background: In the 1730s, the administrator of the Saxon king, Count Brühl, was the most fashionable man at court. The Count's tailor, author of such elegant outfits, was very proud of himself and believed that the laurels of the "dandy" belonged to him above all. He was so proud that one day he asked the count to organize dinner for him with the king himself. Bul, understandably, was ashamed to ask about it, but he found a clever trick. The Earl commissioned sculptor Kendler to create a tailor figurine that could be placed on the royal dining table and thus meet the tailor's request. Grandmaster Meissen approached the issue with humor and portrayed a vain tailor riding a goat, creating a cartoonish composition that has become one of the manufactory's calling cards.
