Gunther Granget Hutschenreuther Porcelain Find our collectibles and gifts Video Translation: Hi, this is Jennifer here with City Farmhouse Antiques and I was taking pictures of this beautiful piece I just got in and I had to stop and do a video to show you all. This porcelain piece is titled "Freedom in Flight" done by Gunther Granget, one of the world's most renown artists of porcelain. It is just exquisite at 19 inches tall. Look at the wing span of this piece. You will see my lights and everything here as I try to get back far enough for you to see the entire piece. I have a mess. I am in the shop working today. Here is the piece in its entirety. Isn't it absolutely gorgeous. As I turn it and look at it and take pictures from all sides it is so lifelike. Those of you that have worked with birds and have had the opportunity to see them up close you can appreciate the resemblance. I have worked for a wildlife rescue off and on and seen many birds up close and the feathering on this piece with the dark and light striations is so true to real life and to believe this is all hand painted. You can tell the quality of this piece just by looking at the detail. There by the eyes you can see the rose tones there. The talons are amazing and of course an eagle is going to have those gold feet. This bald eagle is sculpted in flight and like I said, titled "Freedom in Flight" and stands 19 inches tall. It is a signed Lorenz Hutschenreuther piece. This company actually started production in 1814 under Carolus Magnus Hutschenreuther. His son, Lorenz, began making pieces and figurines at his own manufacturing plant in Selb which he opened in 1857. The bottom of this piece is marked. I'm not going to try to turn it over and hold it with one hand, but from the mark it is not an old piece. It is marked 1969. Of course, guys, that is not old at all. Right? Ha ha. Anyway, it is just beautiful and you can see that it is signed on the bottom. There is the signature. Look at the back. It is just gorgeous and is in perfect condition. I don't even like turning this with one hand. Look at those tail feathers. Even the little edge here, like a real bird, where you can see the feathers are separated. Here you can see the back. So he is clearly resting at an angle. Look at that. Anyway, I just wanted to share this piece with you. I thought it was magnificent.
