Franz Anton Bustelli was a brilliant sculptor. He was also a master of observation. The facial expressions of his figures are so accurate, modern, and timeless that Nymphenburg selected some of his character heads to turn into bottles corks. A cavalier, a pretty girl, and the harlequin provide an illustrious accompaniment to a good bottle of wine. So let’s raise our glasses to the superb sculptor, who still shapes the spirit of the porcelain manufactory today as he did 250 years ago.
