The elegant gold fund of the MEISSEN® Cosmopolitan Mesh Gold collection is also evident in the accompanying coffee saucer. The bright white Meissen porcelain in combination with the framing mesh gold let both noble materials shine in their own particularly impressive way. The precious metal gold has been decisive for the Meissen manufactory since the very beginning. This is how Johann Friedrich Böttger once boasted of being able to create gold and, when commissioned by August the Strong, finally discovered the recipe for the production of the first European hard porcelain instead of gold - that's how the Meissen porcelain was found. Since 1710, the Meissen porcelain manufactory has been producing the noble raw material now that results from kaolin, quartz and feldspar.
