“White Gold” – that is what porcelain used to be called in the 18th century. Most pieces in our collection date from this early period of porcelain production in Europe. Some exquisite pieces by the most famous porcelain modelers of their time Johann Joachim Kändler (1707-1775) and Johann Peter Melchior are presented. The exhibition documents the exciting history of porcelain and its use as a means of politics. Film, pictures and glimpses at the workshop provide insights into the famous Meissen porcelain manufactory. Harlequins, elegant Ladies and delicate shepherd sequences tell us about the world in the age of Rococo. You can experience this culture of gallantry with all your senses- fragrance, music and poetry will take you back to the 18th century. The highlight of our collection is an 18th century pug of Meissen porcelain.
