Gilding

In the Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg pieces are guilded with platinum and 24 carat fine gold which is much thicker than the typical industrial bright gold. This is how Nymphenburg guarantees the highest quality and durability of the decors. Gilded areas and decors with platinum, which exit the kiln dull and lackluster after the firing, are brought to a shine by the skilled polishers of the manufactory with the help of agate and blood stones. Hardly anyone suspects that polishing takes three times as long as painting. It is only the final touch that completes a Nymphenburg original with its characteristic properties: the white of the porcelain in combination with the noble sheen of gold or platinum.
