Franz Anton Bustelli

Nobody influenced the artistic direction of the Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg like Franz Anton Bustelli. On November 3, 1754, the sculptor came to the Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg as a sculptor - shortly after Joseph Jakob Ringler succeeded in producing the first porcelain there. Within a very short time he became a model master at the manufactory and supported ist path to world-renown with his elaborate Rococo designs. Bustelli worked at the Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg until his death in 1763 and after a creative period of almost nine years 150 new designs remained as a sign of his work. The 16 characters of COMMEDIA DELL 'ARTE are among his most outstanding figures that are still produced to this day.
