About 1725, Herold introduced a new variant of his "chinoiserie" decoration, in which small, full-length figures were depicted against cloudless skies, represented by the now brilliantly white porcelain, within foliate borders of gilt and enamel. This configuration became the standard formula for Meissen figural decoration for the next twenty years, although European subjects came to be depicted with greater frequency toward the middle of the century.
