About

The group is based on a Meissen prototype modelled probably by Kändler c1743 and traditionally known as either the ‘Tyrolean dancers’ or the ‘Dutch dancers’. Joseph Willems may have been responsible for the Chelsea model. The group was an especially popular one copied also at Bow and Derby. Examples are even known in Chinese export porcelain.
