In Pics, 300th Anniversary Of Meissen Porcelain

Meissen is celebrating its 300th anniversary. Meissen porcelain is the first European hard-paste porcelain that was developed from 1708. Meissen porcelain is still produced by hand, as the locals call it “white gold” because of its high cost.

Today, more than half of production goes abroad, especially popular among collectors of German porcelain from Japan and Taiwan.
