Porcelain. The 'white gold'.

Porcelain. The 'white gold'.

Johann Friedrich Böttger had boasted he could produce gold. When that didn't work out, Böttger turned his attention to the manufacture of porcelain, which up to that point had to be imported from China at great cost. In this he had more success, and by 1710 the first porcelain in Europe was being produced in Meissen. Over 300 years later, Meissen porcelain has established a reputation as the epitome of dining room elegance. At the House of Meissen interactive exhibition, visitors can get an insight into the triumphant 300-year history of 'white gold'.
