Teapot, Meissen porcelain manufactory, Germany, ca. 1735

This Meissen monkey teapot was once in the collection of the 1st Duke of Windsor, formerly King Edward VIII, or ‘the Abdicator.’ Move around to see the skilfully dynamic modelling of the porcelain, and the detailed overglaze enamel painting – particularly the fine strokes portraying the monkeys’ fur.
