The opportunities for antique German porcelain collectibles are almost unlimited. German porcelain can be found in magnificent chandeliers to petite porcelain buttons, from antique porcelain table services to statues and figurines, and has captured the interest of collectors for the last three centuries.

The introduction of German porcelain production into Europe was revolutionary. Since the accidental discovery at Meissen in 1709 of making porcelain and the establishment of the royal Meissen factory, Germany has become the home of the European true hard-paste porcelain industry. Antique German porcelain was not only beautiful and artistic, but far less expensive and substantially more durable than pottery, and German porcelain began to take its place over other household materials for domestic use. The versatility of porcelain as an artistic material as well as its usefulness created great enthusiasm throughout Europe, where at the time it was referred to as “white gold” and compared by many to semi-precious stones.

Legend has it that a small black and white spaniel was found in the skirts of Mary Queen of Scots (1542-1582) after she was beheaded. The spaniels became great favorites of the British monarchs. King Charles I had a spaniel as a young boy.
