In 1710, the Meissen manufactory was established by Elector Augustus the Strong of Saxony. It all began with "white gold" - the discovery of hard porcelain by court alchemist Johann Friedrich Böttger in 1708. Three hundred years of Meissen means uniqueness; to this day each single object is individually hand-made for discerning customers and connoisseurs with no end of passion and loving attention to detail. Inspired by thrilling journeys of discovery through their legendary four-century old corporate archives, each of today’s creations are a modern interpretation of major European heritage of art and culture appreciated by the connoisseur.
