The Dandelion Collection is adorned by a dandelion decoration that was developed in the master workshops of the Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg in 2014. A large ball of delicate little parachutes that gleam in the light decorates the Lotos

. The dandelion bud first unfurls its full splendour when it bloomed. The beauty of the blossom is a matter of moments. At the first breath of wind, the little parachutes begin to dance in the wind – they fall, float, and twist about. All pieces bear the personal touch of the craftsmen involved in their creation. Each individual piece in the collection is created as a unique object and bears a different blossom.
Inspired by botany, flowers have adorned the manufactory’s repertoire of decorations since the 18th century. A flower motif is first framed by a graphically broken up line that emphasises the elegantly delicate composition of scientifically drawn and seemingly fleeting decorative elements. Wersin’s New Objectivity-style Lotos service from 1929 serves as the motif bearer for the decoration, which unfurls over the tea tray and mug. Lotos' simple basic form and the thin, translucent-looking porcelain are in perfect harmony with the delicacy of the painted decoration. The filigree plant of the Dandelion Collection has always been seen as a mystical flower for making wishes come true, wishes that are borne on the wind by the little parachutes.
