The international career of the Nymphenburg animal figures began at the beginning of the 20th century. Artists such as Theodor Kärner, Josef Wackerle, August Göhring and Luise Terletzki-Scherf shaped the unmistakable style of the manufactory by giving their figures an idiosyncratic character in addition to a lifelike representation and unique colours. Today the Nymphenburg range includes over 700 animal figurines. To be immortalized as an artifact is by no means reserved for specific genres. On the contrary. The manufactory's extensive repertoire of figures also includes other supposedly inconspicuous, but no less charming, creatures. And so even snails, mice, deer and robins enjoy the highest levels of sympathy both nationally and internationally.
