The "Magnificent Terrine" by Johann Joachim Kaendler from 1738 is a terrine-shaped decorative box and was designed for Maria Josepha, the wife of the Saxon elector and Polish king of August III. The jewellery box was intended for the storage of sewing things. Under the proud crown shines the Saxon-Polish alliance coat of arms, symbol of an exceedingly successful policy of the Saxon Wettiner, who ruled since 1696 the electorate of Saxony and the kingdom of Poland in personal union. The women's busts that grow out at the sides as handles, the golden framed breakthrough patterns and the little angels that populate this little fantastic temple of worship also appear truly royal. Limited edition.
