The Meissen monkey band was introduced by Meissen in mid 18th century, became
extremely popular, and was reproduced by Meissen ever since.  
The set consists of 22 pieces including 21 monkey musicians and a conductor's
music stand.
The model numbers are 1 thru 20. They are incised under each figurine next to the
blue crossed swords mark.
The value depends on age, quality and condition.
