Nymphenburg Porcelain Factory:
Maximilian III Joseph, the last prince-elector of the old Bavarian line of the House of Wittelsbach, established the first Bavarian Porcelain Factory in 1747. Nymphenburg porcelain is still today formed, turned and painted by hand as it was in the 18th century. The special colors are produced in the factory itself according to old recipes. The technique of manufacturing porcelain at Nymphenburg calls for a very great measure of craftsmanship and artistic skills, which is entirely rooted in tradition. Nymphenburg Porcelain Factory celebrates it 250-years jubilee in 1997.
