Biscuit · Hare
|Design||Theodor Kärner, 1917|
What distinguished the royal hare from its fellow creatures? The slim stature? The long ears? Principally, its posture. Even in a calm, crouched position, a magnificent example such as Theodor Kärner’s hare that is lying on the ground in white bisque has a majestic countenance. Was his model example at home in the Nymphenburg palace grounds? Very probably. This is because, as we know, the ingenious animal modeller carried out in-depth nature studies before he designed such perfectly modelled figures as these royal hares for the master workshops of the manufactory.
