18th Century Porcelain Meissen African jerboa / afrikanische Springmaus    18th Century Porcelain Meissen African jerboa / afrikanische Springmaus
African jerboa / afrikanische Springmaus. Made by Meissen circa 1735 - 1750. Model number - 139, stamp - faint crossed swords mark in underglaze-blue, see the latest photos. According to a report from July 1734, Kaendler first made a drawing and a bozzetto of the animal. In April 1735 followed the model for the molding in porcelain. Kaendler masterfully understood how to reproduce the mouse in its natural position while still not ignoring the technical requirements of porcelain sculpture. So he pulled the long, spoon-like widened tail between his legs and put it circular over his back so he would not break off. Overall, the figure got her support by resting the stomach on the top open bag. The excellent staffing especially of the eyes gives the life-size animal a completely natural look.

However, the visibility of the white porcelain body on large parts of the body does not deny its materiality. Height: about - 6 2/3 inches / 17cm - Base: about - 4 1/3 x 3 1/2.
