Around the middle of the 18th century, everything that was percieved as Chinese aesthetics and culture became immensely popular. This extraordinary model of the pagoda was created in the context of this fashion . Already designed around 1730 by Johann Joachim Kaendler (1706-1775), a wider production of the model did not follow until 1762. It was Frederick the Great, a great lover of Meissen porcelain throughout his life, who commissioned no less than »10 Bajoden mit wackelnden Köpfen a 1 Fuß hoch« (10 pagodas with wobbling heads 1 foot high) from the manufactory.
