The "Trumpeter" is part of the "Monkey Band", a series of 21 collectible figures by the first Meissen model master Johann Joachim Kaendler. Kaendler, one of the greatest masters of his craft, created this bizarre orchestra in 1753: monkeys playing music in human clothing. Several drawings prove it: Images of monkeys were very much in vogue at that time. With his delicate and hand-painted figures, he holds up a mirror to courtly society - ironically and humorously. Put together in impressively artistic handwork and hand-painted en detail, each figure of his "Monkey Chapel" testifies to Kaendler's brilliant skills of his craft.
