Origin Germany
Description Two rare Meissen figures of the Holzspalter - 'The Wood Splitter' and the Holzäger – 'The Wood Sawyer’ modelled by J.J.Kändler. After drawings by Edmé Bouchardon.

Whilst these two figures are not in the conventional sense a pair, they are traditionally presented together as professions in the wood-working trade.

Literature: Ulrich Pietsch, Meißner Porzellanplastik von Gottlieb Kirchner und Johann Joachim Kändler, pp. 38, 39.

They are priced separately.
