Nymphenburg Porzellan has been manufacturing fine porcelain for over 260 years. Even more notable, perhaps, is the fact that they still have many of the original molds- and the product is still very much handmade.
This Memento Mori Skull is life size and produced in a limited edition of 25.
This is from the company:
Inspired by the unique magnificence of nature, beetles have been adorning the decorative repertoire in manufacture since the 18th century. An extremely rich variety of the colourful small animals is often represented on contemporary designs and artefacts as well. Such designs are also presented on this life-size skull made in glazed ivory porcelain. Each individual artefact in the addition carries the personal signature of the artisan who was involved in its creation, and every single artefact is conceived as a unique piece with variations in its decorative painting. The common denominator in all artefacts is the particularly lively play of colours in delicate the lustre painting with gold and platinum details, which emphasise the extravagant composition of scientifically-illustrated beetles originating from a range of exotic and native strains.
The skull is limited to 25 numbered pieces.
The Skull is available HERE.
