description
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. At that time, it was part of the bon ton to own a snuff box. It became a symbol of the noble world and was used to display taste and prosperity. The "Snuff box Pug" thus represents a very special Christmas present. The motif of the pug has a long tradition in Meissen, already Augustus the Strong gave his beloved Countess Cosel a pug made of Meissen porcelain. For over 2,000 years, the pug has been a trusted companion of the nobility. At that time, he was bred exclusively for the Chinese emperor and enjoyed great popularity among the courtly ladies after his import into Europe.
