At the turn of the last century collecting porcelain animal figures was the height of vogue throughout Europe. The bird models of this collection are figures which were designed by Theodor Kärner between 1910 and 1916. In addition to their unique aesthetic beauty, the main feature of the figures is how extraordinarily true to life they are. The models are made of biscuit porcelain (unglazed porcelain). This material is particularly good for highlighting the excellent sculptural qualities of the Nymphenburg animals. The black coloration of the material makes the animal figures especially rich in detail.
