Ever since its foundation in 1710, the porcelain manufactory Meissen is the embodiment of unique handcraft and exclusive aesthetics. MEISSEN® is one of the internationally best known German brands, immediately recognizable by the crossed swords. The symbol of these crossed swords is the first trademark that was filed in Germany and it is still painted by hand today onto each piece that leaves the manufactory. Then, as now, Meissen® porcelain is being produced in the historic city of Meißen, which is located close to the federal capital of Saxony, Dresden, in the East of Germany.
Due to the history of the manufactory that spans more than 300 years, the company archives are an incredibly rich source for manifold inspirations in forms and colors. With over 700,000 models and casts, Meissen has the largest and eldest mould archive in the world. Combined with more than 10,000 possible colors, all developed in-house, these elements are the solid base for the on-going porcelain innovations at Meissen®.
Meissen® porcelain is famous for its brilliant white color. Its secret lies in the special mixture of local materials, particularly the material kaolin which not only makes up 65% of the recipe but which also comes from Meissen®’s own mine, located just a short distance from the manufactory.
With the unique Meissen® knowhow that was built up over centuries, precious pieces of art and table decorations are brought to life by artisans who have been trained for many years. Every single piece is a symbol for exclusivity and executed in top quality. Once present in every European palace, Meissen® porcelain now adorns some of the most luxurious locations all over the world, be it as a piece of art, as tableware, as jewellery, or in the form of interior decoration.
