    This fragile and intricately modeled porcelain tree, the leaves of which are painstakingly formed by hand, was designed by Karl Gottlieb Lück between 1762 and 1770 for the Frankenthal Porcelain Manufactory, later closed by Elector Max IV Joseph in 1799. Following the closing, the mold was sent to Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg, where this wunderkammer object is produced today.
