The perfect gift
  • Gift giving is an art unto itself – whether wedding or anniversary presents, birthday or Christmas gifts, a thoughtful gesture or a hostess gift for a friend or your in-laws. A gift is always a token of your appreciation for the receiver and also brings joy to the person giving the gift. As a general rule of thumb, gifts with a unique character and symbolic meaning, tailored to the taste of the person receiving the gift, are always a good choice. Personalising a gift, for example by engraving it, makes it truly special. The best gifts are those with their own rich history, that show your appreciation for your host or for the recipient and, moreover, inspire lively conversation and humorous anecdotes. If you are having a hard time deciding on a gift, gift cards offer the recipient the freedom to choose something they are sure to love. This makes gift giving pleasurable for everyone involved and ensures that your loving gesture will be remembered for quite some time.
"There is a long tradition of giving Meissen porcelain as a gift – one that dates back to Augustus II the Strong and the year 1711."
  • Discovering the secret to manufacturing porcelain and founding the first porcelain manufactory in Europe provided Augustus II the Strong with unimaginable diplomatic means for currying favour with other aristocratic houses of the era. It started in 1711 with the gift of a coffee pot and costrel to King Frederik IV of Denmark, followed by a table service for the wedding of Charles VII, Holy Roman Emperor, to Amalia Maria of Austria in 1722. The high point of porcelain gifts was reached in 1727–1728 when six crates of elaborately designed porcelain pieces were sent to Catherine I of Russia. Not stopping there, it would soon become good form at the Saxon court to exchange porcelain gifts, known as “gallantries”, as tokens of affection and personal esteem. A tradition that has grown over 300 years and is upheld anew with every gift of Meissen porcelain. From pug figurines and porcelain jewellery all the way to custom table services, amulets and icons of porcelain artistry, gifts from the extensive repertoire of Europe’s oldest porcelain manufactory are unparalleled in terms of value – they are living expressions of exquisite craftsmanship and attest to a particularly high level of esteem for the recipient.
