Until the 18th century, Europe did not know how to make porcelain, and all products were imported from China. But over time, Europeans mastered the art of porcelain production, appreciating the beauty and grace of this material.
One of the first manufactories that produced china, opened in Bavaria around 1747. There were also workshops that painted porcelain, as well as a pottery workshop.
Initially, the porcelain manufactory was sponsored by Max Joseph III. But since the first 2 years of the master could not create high-quality products, he simply lost interest in this matter, and there was simply not enough money for the existence of the manufactory. But Sigmund von Heimhausen, who was the director of mining, and one of the significant figures in Munich, did not let her close. He donated his own funds in order to continue the life of the factory, and this yielded results. In 1754, the manufactory produced its best porcelain.
All products are made by hand, and the composition from which to make products remains a secret. Of course, this affects the price, but also on the quality of the product.
Museum of Porcelain in Munich located in the castle of Nymphenburg, in its left part. Visitors will learn about the history of porcelain, the first masters making this product. One of the most famous porcelain masters is Francesco Antonio Bustelli, who first created more than 100 products, and he is the author of figures of Italian commandants, who, by the way, are still made using his technology.
During the reign of Ludwig I, the workers mastered the painting on a fair basis. They began to make various dishes, but it was not intended for food, but was made to depict rulers and other especially important persons on it.
Over time, the Nymphenburg manufactory was taken over by the Boylel brothers. It was they who collected about 30 thousand forms, which still produce porcelain dishes.
During the Second World War, the manufactory was seriously destroyed, but after a while it was restored, all the same Boyml brothers. The Porcelain Museum is one of Germany's oldest museums.
