The following are porcelain figurines of children designed for Meissen by Konrad Hentschel around
1905. In their Art Nouveau manner, they were genuinely refreshing compared to the "old" porcelain
figures produced by Meissen thruout 19th century.  Note the realistic clothing. The kids are dressed
for playing, and accurately show the child fashion before 1910.
These figures became an instant success for Meissen resulting in on and off production thru 20th
century.
They also inspired other artists who worked for Meissen, to create their own Art Nouveau children
figurines.
The value of each figure depends on condition, age and rarity. The average is about $1,000.
