The first company to produce porcelain in Europe, Meissen was established in Germany in the early 18th century, developing its signature cobalt blue underglaze in 1720. To protect itself against imitators, it developed a signature mark to identify its genuine porcelain, and to this day every Meissen piece is hand painted with the crossed-swords logo. Be sure to look out for its stunning and original jewellery, some of which incorporates the porcelain that started it all.
