Meissen Porcelain Manufactory

German, 1710
The Meissen Porcelain Manufactory is a German porcelain manufacturer that was founded in 1710 by the Saxon Elector Augustus the Strong in the town of Meissen, near Dresden. It is one of the oldest and most renowned porcelain manufacturers in Europe, and is known for its high-quality porcelain and exquisite hand-painted decoration.
The Meissen factory was founded with the goal of producing porcelain wares that would rival the fine Chinese and Japanese porcelains that were highly prized in Europe at the time. It took several years for the factory to perfect its techniques, but by the 1720s, Meissen porcelain had become highly sought-after by European collectors and aristocrats.
Meissen porcelain is known for its fine, translucent body and delicate hand-painted decoration. The factory's artists and designers have created a wide range of forms and styles over the centuries, from highly ornate Baroque and Rococo pieces to more streamlined Art Deco and modernist designs.
Today, Meissen porcelain remains highly collectible and is represented in major museum collections around the world. The Meissen Porcelain Manufactory continues to produce high-quality porcelain wares, and has expanded its product lines to include modern designs as well as traditional forms.
