The MEISSEN Mug Collection is the result of an artistic collaboration between Meissen’s creative directors Otto Drögsler and Jörg Ehrlich and their team of porcelain painters. A classically inspired mug design is embellished with decorations that draw from the manufactory’s more than 300 years of history, reinterpreting classic motifs and patterns as well as inventing new ones especially for the collection. Abstract and floral painting, stylized symbols, and portraits both human and animal are just a few of the looks to be found in the 20-piece collection, applied to the mugs using a variety of techniques. All colours employed in the series are based on formulas from the manufactory’s paint laboratory, embellishing each motif with unique vibrant hues. The filigree cup form and its elaborately wrought classic handle are testament to the artisanal precision and quality of Meissen porcelain. As an unequivocal identifying mark, each mug bears the manufactory’s Crossed Swords. The collector’s series brings the rich variety of Meissen motifs to life, making the tradition of Europe’s oldest porcelain manufactory part of every good morning.
“The filigree cup form and elaborately wrought classic handle are only made possible by the unsurpassed quality of Meissen porcelain.”
With 20 different decorations to choose from, “The MEISSEN Mug Collection” is both a multifaceted collector’s series and a homage to the design tradition and craftsmanship of the Meissen manufactory. Specially designed packaging makes them the perfect gift for any occasion.
