Meissen porcelain or Meissen china is the first European hard-paste porcelain that was developed from 1708 by Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus. After his death that October, Johann Friedrich Böttger, continued his work and brought porcelain to the market.

The first type of porcelain produced by Böttger was a refined and extremely hard red stoneware known in Germany as Böttgersteinzeug.
Steinzeug is a Germany term for stoneware. The use of the 'red stoneware' was stopped in 1728 and it was about 1920 when the chemist 'Funk' refined the earlier composition. Known as Bottger Steinzeug and used mainly for figurines, metals and coins.

This wonderful Roe Deer figurine was designed by Willi Munch Khe in the mid-1930's. This piece would have been made during the 1940-1950 period. The figurine measures 5" in length, 1 3/4" in width and 5 1/2" in height. Impressed on the base with the "Crosswords" mark and "Bottger Steinzeug A1253". There are no cracks, chips or repairs. The crosswords mark as been scored with two lines which indicates a 'factory second'. I can find no reason for this marking on this piece.
