MEISSEN® at AMBIENTE 2017: Manufactory presents new tableware service with richly varied patterns

10. February 2017

Meissen is showing off new tableware for modern dining at this year’s Ambiente. The Meissen Manufactory is presenting its timeless, clean-lined Shape N° 41 at the Frankfurt fair as a gleaming white porcelain stage for four new patterns: Royal Blossom, Noble Blue, Swords and Stripes. They have been inspired by 300 and more years of Meissen history.

The Manufactory returns to the heyday following its founding in 1710 for Royal Blossom. Some 280 years ago, Master Modeller Johann Joachim Kaendler created snowball blossoms in Meissen porcelain for a tableware service commissioned by the son of King Augustus the Strong. For the first time it now adorns a modern tableware shape as gracefully intricate relief moulding.

The Noble Blue pattern revamps the classic three centuries-old Onion Pattern into a refreshingly vibrant tableware service for a whole range of everyday occasions.

Boasting the longest unbroken tradition on Meissen porcelain are the crossed swords. They have been hand-painted onto each piece ever since 1722. As a tribute to the Manufactory’s fine tradition, the cobalt-blue trademark has now mutated into a design in its own right.

The Stripes pattern spent almost 200 years waiting to be discovered in the Meissen Manufactory archives. The elegant severity of early nineteenth-century classicism with its rays, stripes and lines has now finally found its way onto porcelain.

With four patterns on a single new standard shape, Meissen has fashioned a timeless design that upholds the Manufactory’s long tradition whilst also arousing interest in it amongst new target groups. All the newly launched items are dishwasher-safe.

Also on display at this year’s Ambiente is the Manufactory’s unique prowess in the spheres of figures, figurines and large-format statuary. There are new works of contemporary art to be viewed along with pieces as steeped in tradition as an 18th-century peacock on a tree trunk standing four feet tall.

Meissen is also showing new developments in porcelain jewellery that uniquely combine the Manufactory’s modelling and painting skills at the Frankfurt fair.
