Maritime figurines and themes have always been popular motifs for the Meissen porcelain manufactory. The "Penguin" pendant with naturalistic painting is an example of how the Meissen manufactory deals with maritime worlds. The pendant made of Meissen porcelain, which is made in full relief, illustrates the craftsmanship of handling and combining fine materials such as gold, silver, diamonds and the finest porcelain, which justified the manufactory's worldwide reputation. The Meissen porcelain reflects a history spanning more than 300 years that combines tradition and modernity. At the same time, each Meissen porcelain is a piece of cultural history and thus has a unique meaning.
