Danish Royal Porcelain 1775-2000 - 225 Years of Design


The Earliest European Porcelain in the 18th Century

The state capable of producing its own goods was able to save valuable currency.  Large sums of money were spent on trying to emulate the art of the Chinese.

In most instances this only resulted in an external similarity, but Johann Friedrich Bottger, who worked for the King of Saxony, succeeded in 1709 in producing first brown stoneware and, in the years that followed, a genuine, white porcelain paste, composed of quartz, feldspar and kaolin. Attempts to keep the recipe a secret failed, and in the course of the 18th century porcelain manufactories were established throughout Europe.
