In addition to porcelain mugs from collections such as "VITRUV", the "Swan Service" or "N°41", MEISSEN also offers stand-alone mug collections that showcase a unique variety of decorative artwork. Mugs that feature decorative patterns from over 300 years of manufactory history and attest to the wealth of inspiration and creativity that echoes in Meissen’s ateliers to this day. Among these are such iconic motifs as the "Ming Dragon", the "Onion Pattern" – both in its classic cobalt blue rendition and the colourful new "Rainbow" interpretation – as well as elaborate artwork of birds, one of the most venerated and prolific genres at MEISSEN. Contemporary designs such as "Faces" or the copperplate print-inspired artwork of famous buildings in the "City Mugs" series showcase the manufactory’s contemporary design approach. It is this wealth of pattersn that turn Meissen’s mug collections into sought-after collectors' items, exquisite gifts and souvenirs or simply one’s favourite mug at home, both for a morning cuppa or Sundays spent reclining on the couch.
