Porcelain Edition KAMMERMONSTER
Design: Sebastian Menschhorn
Vienna Porcelain Manufactory Augarten
Sebastian Menschhorn designed the three-part porcelain edition Kammermonster. He combined dragons, lions and snakes with modern tableware. The Snake Cup is inspired by vessels of precious stone adorned with snake handles presented in the Kunstkammer Vienna. One example is the chalcedony bowl by Ottavio Miseroni and Jan Vermeyen made in Prague before 1608.
