MEISSEN - THE CREME de la CREME OF PORCELAIN PUGS: This playful little pug proudly claims a heritage of the oldest and most famous of Pug Porcelain families. Meissen was the first European manufacturer of hard paste porcelain, opening to the public in 1710. Pugs were among their earliest dog models. (See "A Brief History of Pugs" at the top of this page.) Their porcelain remains the finest and they still employ some of Europe's most talented porcelain artists for the hand painting. If you don't yet have a Meissen in your pug collection, this little girl would be a great start. She's beautifully made, yet small and relatively inexpensive for a Meissen Pug. Condition: Perfect. 1 1/2" tall, 2 1/4" long, 7/8" wide. On base: Meissen Pug Model number "78654" and "6W" impressed in the glaze, red number "2814" in the glaze (artist #, I think) and "S x" looks like it may have been engraved on the surface.
