The Rococo-shaped base with gilded plastic decoration and a tree stub growing from it supports a figure of a bearded man clad in nothing but a blue cloak lined with brown-white fur. His right hand is wrapped in a tip of the cloak while he warms up his right palm over the flaming fire. It seems that the figure personifies autumn. Its model was created during the mid-18th century and the item on display originates from Meissen from the period around 1900.
