Twenty different versions of what is probably Bavaria's most famous symbol can be found in the manufactory's current collection alone. And that is just a small selection. Since the manufactory was founded in the 18th century, each artist has interpreted the Bavarian heraldic animal in his own style - sometimes heroically, sometimes cautiously, sometimes playfully. In the history of Nymphenburg, the majestic heraldic animal plays a dual role: on the one hand, it is a reminder of Bavarian culture and the location of the manufactory; on the other hand, the lion also refers to the House of Wittelsbach and its rule.
Porzellan Manufaktur nymphenburg
NYMPHENBURG is the last manufactory of its kind where everything is made entirely by hand. The fine art of porcelain production has been cultivated in the manufactory of the Bavarian royal family since it was founded in 1747. Here, to this day "Manu Factum" still means entirely made by hand using techniques that are passed on and preserved from generation to generation. The master workshops at the Nördliches Schlossrondell in Munich produce style-defining services and artefacts that are ahead of their time, as well as bespoke interior solutions – designed to this day by the most renowned artists, architects, and designers.
