Products

For over 266 years, the products manufactured at Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg have stood both for master craftsmanship and artistic mastery. Porcelain services, figures and objects of the greatest purity have been produced at just this one location in the world – the Nördliches Schlossrondell in Nymphenburg – with broadly unchanging methods since the 18th century.

Thanks to successful cooperation with the famous artists of their times, Nymphenburg designs have, since the beginning, been regarded as highlights. With the playful rococo figures by Franz Anton Bustelli on which the manufactory's international reputation was founded, the new-objective services by Wolfgang von Wersin with which the modern period commenced up to current work with such internationally renowned designers as Konstantin Grcic and Ted Muehling, Nymphenburg's products reflect a unique variety of the highest artistic quality.
