Meissen Ming Dragon Brown Dinner Plate 11" *40% OFF!*
Meissen Ming Dragon Brown Dinner Plate 11 Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $242.40
Each piece of Meissen is hand-painted to order in the centuries old tradition of exquisite German craftsmanship. Among the many things dragons symbolize in Chinese mythology are supernatural wisdom, the spirit of change, the rhythm of nature, and the doctrine of emergence. Each Meissen Ming Dragon piece has a scalloped edge, developed in 1740.

Only genuine Meissen porcelain has retained its value over time. Witness the extraordinary prices which Meissen porcelain pieces habitually fetch at international auctions. Part of this value derives from the fact that no two pieces are ever exactly alike as each piece bears the imprint of the individual artistís hand, a distinction almost beyond price.

Meissen is Europe's first hard-paste porcelain manufacturer. The factory was established in 1710 under the patronage of Augustus the Strong, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland, in the Saxon town of Meissen, fifteen miles northwest of Dresden, Germany. It has been in continuous operation ever since.

Currently, more than 175,000 items are produced from a library of around 200,000 different forms dating back to the early eighteenth century.

Ever since Meissen began manufacturing porcelain, quality has been the foremost priority. Meissen is committed to superb artistry in handcrafting and to finding a perfect balance between tradition and innovation.
