Table pieces, sacral figures and decorative ornamental figures have, since the beginning, been part of Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg's repertoire. With the outstanding figures produced by the rococo sculptor, Franz Anton Bustelli, and his successor, Dominikus Auliczek, Nymphenburg was already able to establish its international reputation in the first years of its existence. Bustelli's COMMEDIA DELL' ARTE, CHINOISERIE and PUTTI characters were then – and remain today – some of the most popular figures produced by Nymphenburg. Such unique pieces as the CRUCIFIX by Ignaz Günther bear witness to the extraordinary artistic quality of Nymphenburg designs. All figures that remain available today go back to the original designs – each piece is thus part of an unlimited edition from the 18th century.
