Along with the unusual animal figures, the underglaze technique of the Nymphenburg master workshops has also become famous. If you look at the silky fur of foxes and deer, you’ll understand why. All the different shades in the fur are superimposed in individual layers of colour from dark to light. Yet the interplay of light and shade, the proportions, and the purity of form are also perfectly shown to advantage in the unpainted figures. This is because porcelain is the ideal material to bring out the fine, characteristic traits of the animals.
