History of Meissen
Meissen porcelain was the first European porcelain ever to be made in 1710. For years, alchemists tried to discover the formula for porcelain. Bottger, an alchemist , discovered the first European porcelain.. In 1710, after kaolin was discovered, the Meissen porcelain company was started under August the Strong. All the royal families in Europe desired vessels made out of this porcelain. They used their best sculpturers and painters to model figures and paint the porcelain. They had a special painting school called The Meissen Drawing School to train modelers and painters as early as 1764. The training took three years before artists mastered the skills to paint on Meissen porcelain.

Meissen porcelain patterns have been copied by many other china makers all over the world like Royal Copenhagen, Dresden, Herend, and many other makers. The glaze on Meissen porcelain maintains its quality over time. This is why old Meissen looks so new and keeps its good condition.
