Complete Antique 19th Century Meissen porcelain Monkeys Orchestra set – 22 Pieces.
The monkey band was introduced by Meissen in mid 18th century, became extremely popular,
and was reproduced by Meissen ever since .
The set consists of 22 pieces including 21 monkey musicians and a conductor’s music stand.
The model numbers are 1 thru 20. They are incised under each figurine next to the blue
crossed swords mark. The conductor’s music stand does not have a model number while both
the triangle player and the drummer are numbered 12 which makes things a bit confusing.
The value depends on age, quality and condition.
