Johann Joachim Kaendler's monkey orchestra is one of the most world famous Meissen Classics. Nearly a quarter of a millenium after their creation, Meissen re-equipped these untamed musicians for the greater service and pleasure of the public. Christian Schoppler transformed them into six decorative motifs. These adorn coffee cups which may look modern, but are actually of neo-classical origin, and they consciously take up Kaendler's preliminary watercolour studies from 1753.
