The tradition of "white gold" in Europe
Porcelain’s origin goes back to a time around 1,100 b.c. in China, with porcelain having its “heyday” during the Ming dynasty, between the 14th and 16th century. It came to Europe during the 13th century, brought by the famed Marco Polo, expedition leader and adventurer.
It was in 1708 when the ingredients for porcelain were "invented" in Europe by Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus. It was his pupil Johann F. Böttger, alchemist at the court of King August the Strong, who actually perfected the formula. Originally he was looking for a way to make gold (to help improve the court’s finances), but he, instead, discovered the secret of porcelain, the "White Gold".
Porcelain production is very much a craft, as it remains today. Artistic taste and hand-craftsmanship influenced the development of the porcelain industry in Europe, as in no other industry. During the second half of the 19th century the industry prospered and by the beginning of 20th century some 60,000 people were employed in porcelain making in Germany.
