At MEISSEN the pug has a long tradition. Even the Saxon Elector and founder of the Manufacture, August der Starke, once gave his famous mistress Cosel a pug made of Meissen porcelain. To this day, the enthusiasm for this breed of dogs remains unbroken, which is why Meissen dedicates its own collection to the popular pets with over sixty different variants. This also includes the 3cm pug pendant "Blue Edition" shown here. The pug "Blue Edition" carries a chain with a blue sapphire in addition to its bell collar. The characteristic drawing of the dog breed was applied by hand to the trailer. The original shape of the porcelain dog dates from the middle of the 18th century.
