Johann Joachim Kaendler's "Snuff Box Pug" from the 18th century is one of many tins that were provided with a sculptured pug under Kaendler. The Pug has a long tradition at Meissen. Even the Saxon elector and founder of the manufactory, August the Strong, once gave his famous lover Countess Cosel a pug made of Meissen porcelain. More than 2,000 years ago, a pug was bred in China for the first time, reserved exclusively for the emperor. After some four-legged friends were kidnapped, the pug arrived in Europe via Holland and England in the 18th century and became the loyal companion of the courtly ladies. Limited to 25 pieces.
