The monkey band was introduced by Meissen in mid 18th century, became extremely popular,
and was reproduced by Meissen ever since.  
The set consists of 22 pieces including 21 monkey musicians and a conductor's music stand.
The model numbers are 1 thru 20. They are incised under each figurine next to the blue
crossed swords mark. The conductor's music stand does not have a model number while both
the triangle player and the drummer are numbered 12 which makes things a bit confusing.
The value depends on age, quality and condition.
