The little kingfisher rests on a branch with its beak stretched upwards. Handcrafted and naturalistic in its presentation, this eye-catcher fits into any room as a fine decorative object. The design comes from Johann Baptist Pedrozzi in 1765. He was appointed modeler at the Royal Porcelain Manufactory of Berlin a year earlier and created a series of impressive life-size animal figures.

The kingfisher is like no other bird: small as a sparrow, but unmistakable and beautiful with its bright blue or turquoise plumage. Bird experts are best able to recognize the kingfisher by its call, a piercing, high-pitched whistle. The main area of ​​distribution is the tropics, where its color is excellently adapted to its surroundings.

The kingfisher can be discovered in the shade on the banks of a body of water, where it concentrates on looking for food. Like an arrow, it shoots into the water as soon as a fish is nearby and then grabs it with its beak.

Whether completely white or painted in a shimmering and colorful way, the kingfisher is a real highlight with a lot of history in every interior. After all, the figure was created by Pedrozzi over 250 years ago. He previously worked as a plasterer in the service of the Margrave of Bayreuth, for whom he artistically designed the rooms of the New Palace in the Hermitage Park and the large palace in the city center, also called the New Palace. In Potsdam he was involved in the decoration of the New Palace. He created a series of impressive life-size animal figures for the KPM Berlin.
