Germany: Fürstenzug in Dresden

On Tuesday I got a postcard from Germany.

It shows the Fürstenzug in Dresden. The Fürstenzug is a large Meissen porcelain artwork showing portraits of 35 rulers of the House of Wettin between 1127 and 1904. It was originally painted between 1871 and 1876 and between 1904 and 1907 the painting was copied to 23000 porcelain tiles to make it weather proof. It is the largest porcelain artwork in the World. 

The card was signed during the Postcrossing Meet-up in Dresden.

Thank You very much Thomas!
