Gifts fit for a monarch
There are not many firms who can claim they were suppliers to the Royal Court. As well as being the first supplier of porcelain to European royalty, however, the MEISSEN® Manufactory with its white gold was actually founded by a king, Augustus the Strong.
King Augustus made his first big impression with presents from the MEISSEN® Manufactory as early as 1711, King Frederik of Denmark being the lucky recipient. Porcelain creations from the MEISSEN® Manufactory have turned up regularly at the world’s major ruling houses ever since. It goes without saying that modern-day royalty are welcomed in due style with a banquet served off of Meissen porcelain, a case in point being the Queen of Denmark when she visited Dresden.
