Nymphenburg Sitting Mouse
Unfortunately there is no record of whether there were many mice in Neuhäuser’s native Katzhütte. But, apparently fascinated by the agility of the little rodents, during his one and a half years spent working as a model maker for Manufaktur Nymphenburg, Wilhelm Neuhäuser made four different mouse figurines alone. The best-known one to this very day is this eight-centimetre-tall sitting mouse. Painted, glazed, or as seen here in biscuit porcelain, it has long ranked among the best sellers.
