79th Cameron Highlander 1814. This statue was created at the Sitzendorf Porcelain Manufacture in Sitzendorf, Thuringia, Germany between 1905 and 1955. Bright colors, strict details, and military attire make it amazingly realistic. An ideal gift for a collector of military figurines!

In 1762, upon the prince's orders, the manufacture was moved to Volkstedt. The second factory was opened by Wilhelm Liebmann in 1850 and destroyed.
