European Porcelain

During the early part of the eighteenth century there was a drive to create a form of European porcelain similar to the material from China or Japan. The first place to achieve success was the Meissen factory near Dresden. At his court in Hanover, George II owned a Meissen porcelain table service and Frederick, Prince of Wales had a complete dinner service. Later in the century porcelain from France became more fashionable, and a rare and exceptional example of work from the Vincennes factory in Paris is also shown here.
