By Meissen Porcelain Manufactory (German, founded 1710)
This superb Meissen porcelain group depicts a Rococo style mythological scene of water nymphs hauling in a fishing net containing the young water god Triton.
This large porcelain group by Meissen depicts mythological subject matter. Two water nymphs, both naked except for scanty drapes around their hips, are assisted by a putto in their hauling in of a fishing net containing the infant Triton, along with some caught fish. The group is set on an integral rockwork base applied with a frog, some coral, various shells, and reeds. The present model is after the 18th century original modelled by Kändler and is thus designed and decorated in the German Rococo style, with pastel shades of blue and pink predominating.
The underside is marked with blue underglaze crossed swords for Meissen, is impressed with the model number ‘C 35 / 51’, and is numbered ‘54’ in red painter’s pigment.
