The box "Tabatiere Pug" was created by Johann Joachim Kaendler in the 18th century. The limited edition piece is one of many, which was provided with a plastic pug under Kaendler's handicraft. At that time it belonged to the fine tone to own a tabatiere. Thus, this piece of hand-painted craftsmanship also became a symbol of the distinguished world. The box was used to show off taste and wealth. The "Tabatier Pug" thus represents a very special and limited gift. The here hand-painted motif of the pug has a long tradition in Meissen arts and crafts. Already August the Strong gave his mistress Countess Cosel a pug made of Meissen porcelain. For over 2,000 years, the pug has been a beloved companion of the nobility. At that time bred exclusively for the Chinese emperor, it enjoyed great popularity among courtly ladies after its importation into Europe.
