Biscuit Porcelain
  • With its extraordinary fineness and silky matt surface, biscuit porcelain exudes an unmistakable charm. Sculptural qualities, modelling skills and decorations such as reliefs are shown to full effect and are further accentuated by the material’s fascinating tactile quality. Developed in the 18th century by the French painter Jean-Jacques, the fine material rose to prominence as a substitute for ivory, alabaster and marble in the manufacture of the Château Vincennes. To this day, biscuit porcelain is often compared to marble because of its unique way of diffusing light rather than reflecting it. At MEISSEN, this effect and material quality is achieved by polishing the unglazed surface of fired porcelain pieces in painstaking detail, resulting in the biscuit’s characteristic velvety soft surfaces.
"Biscuit is porcelain in its purest form: unglazed, velvety matt and with a slight transparency that seems to capture the light within."
  • Porcelain in its purest form. Contrary to popular belief, biscuit porcelain has the same properties as its glazed counterparts in terms of density, hardness, strength and resistance. By omitting the glaze, details, such as sculptural swerves, elaborate embossing work and decorations, such as reliefs, are highlighted and given a unique tactile quality, showing off the skills of Meissen artisans in a particularly compelling way. It should come as no surprise that countless elaborately decorated porcelains are also finished as biscuit variants, exploiting the full expressive potential of that material. Collections such as the “Swan Service”, "Waves", the "Royal Blossom" series as part of "N°41" or the "VITRUV" collection. As part of a mix and match approach to table settings, paired with glazed pieces of the same or also other collections or even hand painted porcelain pieces – there are simply no limits to expressing your own personal style at the dinner table.
