True greatness is not necessarily measured in centimetres. That is illustrated by this richly decorated mini amphora with pedestal dating from the 18th century. Barely 15 centimetres tall, the piece is decorated with two rams’ heads and a relief of acanthus leaves. But what transforms the porcelain masterpiece into an eye catcher is the hand-applied blue and gold decoration dating back to the painting of the Bavarian royal service.
