Monkey Orchestra Asprey Edition

Monkey Orchestra Asprey Edition

The Asprey Edition of the Monkey Orchestra is an absolute first for MEISSEN®, this being the first time ever that MEISSEN® heritage patterns have been applied to figurines from the 18th century. A designer at Asprey London had the idea whilst on a visit to the Manufactory. MEISSEN® artists worked closely with the Asprey designer to select 21 pattern variants from a total of over 6,000 vastly differing options. They constitute a time journey through several stylistic eras and more than 300 years of MEISSEN PORCELAIN® history.

 

The Monkey Orchestra has been lovingly hand-crafted since 1753. Of all the many consummate figure groups conceived at MEISSEN® in the mid-18th century, the Monkey Orchestra still causes the greatest stir and is regarded as the most familiar series of collectibles from MEISSEN®.
