Porzellanmuseum im Augarten
With over 150 representative pieces from various artistic phase, the museum tales the story of Austrian porcelain. Indeed, at the beginning of the exhibition on the upper floor of the museum, guests learn about the genesis of porcelain in China and the European fascination with the product which ensued. Once the right balance between porcelain’s constitutive componenets was struck 1718, the first Viennese manufactory under Claudius Innocentius de Paquier was born.
Then, as you continue to wonder through the museum, you will learn more about the various production stages required to acheive the highest quality of poercelain.
Last but not least, the ground floor of the museum houses some of our notable creations from the 20th and 21st centuries as well as a bit more information about our company and the changes it underwent over time as we reopened our doors at Augarten in 1923.
The impressive collection of porcelain pieces also showcases important artistic patternships they have made over the years. One will notably note art deco services and figurines crafted by well-known artists such as Michael Powolny, Vally Wieselthier, Josef Hoffmann and Friedrich Ludwig Berzeviczy-Pallavicini. To this day, yes still collaborate extensively with designers, sculptors and painters who are fascinated with porcelain as an artistic medium.
