  • Louis XV st. Read More
  • (Louis XV st.) - Also known as Louis Quinze or Rocaille, this style followed the traditions of French décor, until it took on a life and look of its own with decorations and motifs becoming more exuberant. The style was heavily influenced by the mistress of Louis XV, Madame de Pompadour, and marked the beginning of the Rococo movement. In his old age, from 1750 – 1774, Louis XV showed more signs of constraint in his design style and this period showed more signs of French Neoclassicism.
  • Meissen Read More
  • Meissen porcelain or Meissen china was the first European hard-paste porcelain. Developed in 1708 by Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus. After his death, Johann Friedrich Böttger continued von Tschirnhaus's work and brought porcelain to the market. The production of porcelain at Meissen, near Dresden, started in 1710 and attracted artists and artisans to establish one of the most famous porcelain manufacturers, still in business today as Staatliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Meissen GmbH. Its signature logo, the crossed swords, was introduced in 1720 to protect its production; the mark of the crossed swords is one of the oldest trademarks in existence. It dominated the style of European porcelain until 1756.
