In 2018 the Vienna Porcelain Manufactory celebrates its 300th anniversary. Having obtained the charter to produce porcelain in 1718, it is considered
the second oldest porcelain manufactory in Europe after Meißen. The volume accompanying the exhibition in the MAK – Austrian
Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art in Vienna will now reopen the history of the Vienna Porcelain Manufactory, which closed in 1864,
where major works such as the porcelain chamber from the Palais Dubsky (Dubsky Room) and the Zwettl centrepiece are presented in light of new
findings. With numerous illustrations of leading pieces from the MAKs collection and international loans, the catalogue attests to the significance
that Viennese porcelain has enjoyed as an outstanding cultural achievement
of Austria since the Baroque era.
