The very first “Dresden” style factory, Meissen has been making Chinese style hard-paste porcelain since 1710. This type of porcelain was first attempted by Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus in 1708, and after his death, continued by Johann Friedrich Bottger who finally was able to perfect it and manufacture it, financed by the King of Poland, Augustus the Strong. Meissen became the most famous porcelain manufacturer known throughout the world. Its signature logo, the crossed swords, was introduced in 1720 to protect its production; the mark of the swords is reportedly one of the oldest trademarks in existence. In the 1760’s, the French attempted to take over the market with their own beautiful variations and styles, but Meissen remains the dominant and most prestigious porcelain factory to date. Since 1991, Meissen has been owned by the Free State of Saxony, under the name “Staatliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Meissen GmbH”. The company is one of the world’s leading porcelain manufacturers and one of the oldest and most internationally known German luxury brands.
