The Neuschwanstein Castle is located in Bavaria (Germany), near the town of Fussen. It was built in 19th century by King Ludwig II of Bavaria, also known as the “Fairytale King”.
Designer Hella Jongerius handcrafted these beautiful glazed porcelain bowls, each featuring a different 3D animal in the center. The series was commissioned by Nymphenburg, a Bavarian porcelain manufacturer that’s been creating high-quality artistic porcelain since the mid-18th century. Jongerius chose these particular animals from porcelain creations in the Nymphenburg archives. Each animal is complimented by a floral design or pattern, some of which have even been incorporated into the animals’ bodies. The floral patterns were taken from cups and saucers also from the Nymphenburg archives.
