The base with a gilded Rococo decoration bears a standing figure of Bacchus who leans against a tree and wears a garland of grapes on his head. His attire solely consists of a deer fur while the animal’s head with antlers hides the intimate parts of his body. Bacchus has his right arm akimbo and holds a bunch of grapes in it, having a wine cup in his left, ready to have a sip. A basket full of grapes stands by his feet. The model was created in Meissen in the mid-18th century and the figure on display originates from the period around 1900.
