Germany: Meissen Porcelain

Today I got two postcards: one from Germany and one from Singapore.

The card from Germany shows a collection of Meissen Porcelain. The Meissen Porcelain Manufacture was founded in 1710 by Augustus II the Strong as Europe's first porcelain manufacture. From the foundation until 1863 it was housed in the Albrechtsburg in Meissen and then it moved to an own factory. 


Stamp:
Dresden (from set of two) (issued 03-04-2014)


Thank You very much Klaus!
