An entirely new material: porcelain (design) in the 18th century.

Industrial espionage and treason in the 18th century led to the dissemination throughout Europe of the formulation for porcelain that had been discovered in Meissen and diligently kept a secret.

 


Tour through the exhibition with Dr. Katharina Hantschmann.

 

In the 17th and 18th centuries, the porcelain highly coveted by courts throughout Europe was imported from East Asia. It took laborious experiments to manufacture the precious material in Saxony, where in 1710 the first European porcelain manufactory was founded. The superbly lustrous and easily moldable substance set a new benchmark for European dining culture: cups and pots for the new swank beverages – coffee, tea and cocoa – as well as representative tableware featuring lavish centerpieces and sets of fanciful figurines.
