Cute on the slopes
Karl the skier loves winter and is therefore dressed all in white. His mini-muff and scarf are lovingly decorated in biscuit porcelain, and what are probably the world's smallest ski goggles provide the necessary vision. As befits the youngest generation, the fifth offspring of the mouse family is quite daring on the slopes. The story of the Karls begins in the early 20th century and goes back to a living role model. Karl the Real, a cheeky mouse man, unabashedly begged the employees of the manufactory for tidbits. He found apples irresistible. This resulted in Wilhelm Neuhäuser's first porcelain figurine in 1911, with pointed ears and little paws folded in thanks. All his descendants, regardless of their shape, still have plenty of fans today - even in the workshops.
Porcelain manufactory nymphenburg
Nymphenburg is the last purest manufactory of its kind. Since its foundation in 1747, the high art of porcelain production has been cultivated at the manufactory of the Bavarian royal family. Manu factum means there to this day: made entirely by hand using techniques that have been passed down and preserved from generation to generation.
