Figure "Lady with Fan", H 29,5 cm

The neo-Classicist MEISSEN® Exhibition Hall was ceremoniously inaugurated with a major porcelain exhibition one hundred years ago. "Lady with Fan" by Alfred König (1871-1940) is from around the same period. He was one of the leading modellers of small-format art nouveau figures and produced numerous inimitably vibrant works for MEISSEN®. He had a marvellous capacity for capturing magical scenes from everyday life, be it a girl eating cherries, a couple ice-skating - or this lady, who is about to create a pleasant draft with her fan.

In a state of expectation, one hand behind her back, she directs her gaze far beyond the beholder and smiles - how we would love to know whom this smile is intended for! This is how she may have stood as a guest at the inaugural celebrations for the Exhibition Hall in MEISSEN®, the centenary of which is being marked by re-issuing this figurine. Its consummate decoration, at once restrained and extravagant, of delicately painted facial features and highlights in 23-carat gold lends the gracious statue a particular sense of elegance, making it a perfect symbol for a major anniversary.
