According to the story, the Meissen artist J. J. Kandler created the "Taylor Riding the Goat" as a put down for the ambitious tailor of Count Heinrich Bruhl. It seems the tailor overstepped his bounds by asking the Count for an invitation to dine at his supper table. Count Bruhl was appalled that such a lowly subject would dare to suggest dining at the same table as Royalty. To put the presumptuous tailor in his place, Bruhl had Kandler design figurines to set at the table, in place of the tailor and thus fulfill his request. The tailor was escorted out of town, but the figurine created its own existence. The Taylor's figurine morphed into two, the other being his wife.

Since the early 19th century, several factories have reproduced and designed these figurines. This charming example has very fine detail and is in excellent condition. It is slightly over 8 inches tall and the base is about 6 inches long. It is clearly marked on the bottom with a mark which we have been unable to identify.

The Taylor himself was also so enshrined ......his figurine is listed separately.
