"Kaiser Porzzallon" White German Shepherd Dog Figurine From 1975!
This Great Example of Fine German
Porcelain Sculpture was Available from Kaiser Porcelain of West Germany in
For over 125 years, Kaiser, for over
Four Generations, Produced the World’s Finest Quality Porcelain.
Nestled in the charming Village of Staffelstein, Germany, Kaiser has
dedicated itself to the Art of Defining Elegance, Beauty, and Fine
Craftsmanship. Indeed, Collectors, Statesmen, and Art Lovers seek its
Highly Valued Porcelain Works. Kaiser Sculptures have been Prized
by Presidents, Prime Ministers, and a Host of Dignitaries the World
over. To what does Kaiser owe its World Class Reputation? Well, for
one, its Commitment to the Highest Standards of Quality Achieved by
Creating the Best Porcelain from the Finest Materials. Second,
Kaiser relies Primarily on the Personal Touch of Experienced,
Skilled Craftsmen to Create the World’s Most Exquisite Porcelain
Pieces. Indeed, Kaiser is World Renown for its Hand-Painted
Artists’ Editions and Beautiful White Bisque Porcelain. Finally,
in Preparation and Production, Kaiser pays attention to the very
Smallest of Details, insuring every square inch of its Fine Work has
been completely and totally, perfected.
This Gorgeous White
German Shepherd Dog Figurine, Modeled by Kaiser's World Renowned
Professional Sculptor, Wolfgang Gawantka, was sculpted in 1975.
Limited This Edition to 3,000 Pieces Total, about half of the total in White and
remaining were in Hand
Painted Color. As needed to fill orders for this Beautiful
Figurine, They were Sculpted in Lots of Varying Quantities. As
Time passed, Demand lessened and Kaiser quit filling Orders which were
small and could not be produced at a profit. This made the Limited Edition even
"SMALLER," as final numbers ended up to be 700 for the Hand Painted
Black and Tan Dogs, and 814 for the White Bisque Dogs, making a smaller Total
Edition of only 1,514 pieces, according to Production Book 528, instead of the
3,000 Figurines originally planned. This increased the Rarity of them and, of course, Increased
the VALUE Also!
The First 40 pieces
of each Figurine Produced by the Kaiser Factory , were always sent to Canada to a
Brother of the Factory Owner of the Kaiser Porcelain Factory. The
Brother's Gallery would Exhibit and Sell those Initial Releases of Figurines. This meant
If a Very Early Release of a "Limited Edition" Piece was a requirement of yours,
it would Require The Figurine to be Obtained From the Canadian Brother's Gallery.
This "Very Early Piece" in
the Photo below, is Marked "No. 39" of
3,000 pieces, as you can see
on the Bottom of the Piece.
The "Blue Kaiser"
Logo is always Prominent at the left side, as is the Number Mark in the
Center. The Number "528" which you also see and appears to be embossed
into the figurine, is the Number of the
Factory Production Book in which the Production Records of the particular
Edition were Hand Written. This Production Book 528, is
presently Achieved by Kaiser Porcelain, and was Researched by
Kaiser's Historian. My Thanks to Kaiser Porzellan for the Information
These Fine Pieces
were, In Fact, Originally Purchased in Ontario, Canada, from the Canadian Gallery
belonging to the Factory Owner's Brother. I have personal knowledge of only
Three of the White Bisque Figurines and only this one hand painted Black and Tan
piece. These Beautiful Kaiser White German
Shepherd Figurines have become very Rare over the years and are Rarely seen and
hardly ever come to Market.
It was Our Desire
to Show as Many "Views" of this Beautiful White German Shepherd
Figurine as Possible for your Viewing Pleasure, So, I have included Numerous Photos for your Viewing Pleasure. No......, It
Is Only One Figurine, Although Some Pictures Include "Two Views" for effect.
Sculpted Porcelain Pieces are Privately Owned and are NOT available. Although it was One of the
Original "First Forty Pieces" sent to the Canadian Gallery for Sale, This
Beautiful Piece has the Distinction of having been in Canada for a Couple
Decades before it was sent to The United States for several more years.
More Recently, It was Returned to Germany by its Present Owner, Making This
Particular German Shepherd Dog's Journey, which had lasted several Decades,
Complete! He's Now Returned HOME!
Detail of these Beautiful
Sculpted Porzellan German Shepherd Figurines make it easy for one to understand
Their Collectible Prominence with Collectors.
Of Interest here, and worth
Bottom is Marked "West Germany" denoting its age as having been made
prior to the "Tearing Down of the Wall" between East and West Germany adding a
Place in World History as well to these Fine Figurines.
