Decorative porcelain is the

preserve of the Dresdner Porzellan manufacture. And the employees of the manufacture can demonstrate what can be made with the material porcelain. Since beginning the brand Dresden porcelain is connected with luxuriant ornamental objects of porcelain, decorated with applications of blossoms, free flower painting and the painting of sceneries and portraits – and all that on porcelain.

You may have seen one of

the monumental vases from Dresden production in one or other museum. Beside these objects which are produced in Dresden today like before, the Dresdner Porzellan manufacture produces a further range, clearly smaller, but not less interesting objects.

Particularly the sweet small

boxes with bouquets of flowers, cut outs, and with small forget-me-not decorated are to be emphasized. In these boxes we find a lot what is the strenght of Dresdner Porzellan manufacture: a high technical skill with free cutting out of the breakthroughs, the finest elaboration of the blossoms applicated with wafer-thin sheets and needle fine filaments and not least the artistic painting by hand. By many different operations these items from the small dimensions become a veritable piece of art.

Stylistically the products of

the Dresden Porcelain manufacture are connected in their luxuriance to the baroque, however, the elements of the rococo and later also of the classicism also take up. Thus we also find with the decorative Porcelain of Dresden Porcelain a whole series of more sober objects which we can fancy in a building of Schinkel: Lid vases and breakthrough bowls without decoration, discreet play between glazed surfaces and finely worked out reliefs and clear forms which have renounced of the splendour addiction to the construction of the baroque.

Also romantic décors from the

turn of the century, with over and over again in different forms and colours, emergent flowers, blossoms, linked by a foliage from white painted overglaze find their place in the model books of Dresden porcelain.

These products remain nevertheless

a rather small part of the spectrum of Dresdner Porzellan, the biggest part is taken by luxuriant forms, rich applicated flower garlands, coloured or monochrome picture painting and baroque staffage, often in stately size.

However: a lot of this spirit you will discover in these smaller items the same.

Dresden Porcelain

Sächsische Porzellanmanufaktur

Dresden: Authentic and Unique, Excessively and Prestigiously. You must'nt be a Porcelain specialist to recognise these pieces of art as of the Dresden genre - not to mistake with the Viennese manner or the gesture of Meißen.

The history of the Dresdner Porzellan

has begun for a long time before the real foundation by Johann Carl Gottlieb Thieme in 1872. In a period of bloom in which in Dresden many house painters white china (Weissware) decorated, also produced Johann Carl Gottlieb Thieme decorative porcelain which he expelled with great success also in his small art dealer's shop and classical art action in Viktoriastrasse in Dresden. His ornamental porcelain completely corresponded to the taste of the upperclass and aristocratic buyers in baroque Dresden. He acquired to himself, nevertheless, already early comprehensive knowledge from the restoration of the royal porcelain collection. Up to the foundation of the porcelain manufacture in Dresden Potschappel the china was imported undecorated as a white product particularly from Thuringia. With the establishment of the then very modern factory of Carl Thieme these also took over the production of the white product. Nevertheless, the history of the Dresdner Porzellan manufacture is not to be thought without modeler of porcelain-flowers Karl August Kuntsch puts down in 1874 on the company of Carl Thieme. The luxuriant flower application which we find on many parts of the Dresdner Porzellan manufacture belongs to the remaining heir of Karl August Kuntsch.

Already in the first years the

Dresden Porcelain manufacture Carl Thieme succeeds in gaining famous prices on the world exhibitions and in expelling his products outside his state and his country. In spite of high penal duties Thieme exports his products to Great Britain, the United States of America and Russia. Primarily specified on adorned porcelain the Dresdner Porzellan completely corresponds to the time taste: invested to the rococo, to the natal aera of the European porcelain, fits out and applied with naturalistic flowers and blossoms, figurines, paints in usual manner in free flower painting or complete tableaux. A specific feature Thieme also already had produced at his lifetimes, were the candlesticks and paraffin lamps which he even exported till the USA.

We find again all these style

elements also today, 140 years after the foundation of the manufacture, in all products of the Dresdner Porzellan. One of the typical elements of the porcelain manufacture is the free flower painting: A central blossom, complements with two minor flowers and tendril work. All this is raised without predrawing and without draft by the porcelain painters on the glazed porcelain. No blossom resembles of the others and also the colour can be an absolutely different one. In this respect every part is, for example, also from a dinner service a unique specimen and bear the hallmarks  of the porcelain painter. The same like with the luxuriant flower applications: On many ornamental objects these flower decorations are to be found, in filigree manner naturalistic worked out, so that yet the filaments may not be missed. These flower decorations are typical for the ornamental porcelain Dresden origin. Another sign that of the Dresdner Porzellan are the freehand cut breakthroughs which we find with many baskets and bowls, but also with the big candelabras in or table candlesticks.

All decorative objects from the

Dresden Porcelain manufacture - Dresdner Porzellan - are no replicas of the past time, but the living continuation of the inheritance the Dresden Porcelain painter and modeler of porcelain-blossoms. With every piece of this unusual brand you hold a unique specimen in the hands. A piece of art which outlasts the times.
