Royal Copenhagen Gerhard Henning Princess on the pea figurine
Measures 16 3/4"
The making of a Princess
It takes seven to eight months to produce the final figure, some six months alone being taken up in its decoration. The Princess on the Pea is a major work of Gerhard Henning's first period at the Royal Porcelain Manufactory (1909-1914). The figure was first executed in 1911. In the following year it was awarded the 1st class medal at the Salon in Paris, where it was generally deemed to be one of the finest pieces of European porcelain of the period. Gerhard Henning lived from 1880-1967.
The Princess is 45 cm high; it has been painted with more than 80 colors. The Princess is a bonbonniere, which means that the top can be taken off
