The most pioneering design by Dominikus Auliczek

The most pioneering design by the Bohemian sculptor, Dominikus Auliczek, is the PEARL service in the Louis-Seize style that gets its name from a bar of pearls that runs along the borders of the individual items. For the first time in the history of European porcelain, Auliczek based his service on a dodecagon shape – instead of the usual round shape. Such different pieces in the services as the cups and tureens were also adorned with plastic acanthus leaves – a typical motif in classical art and architecture, which Auliczek was able to study during his trips around Italy. Adorned with sepia vedute and lavish blue-and-gold decoration, it was reserved exclusively as the ROYAL BAVARIAN SERVICE for the Wittelsbach family. The PEARL shape is today also available in white, three in-glaze designs (blue, yellow, green) and painted with pearl decorations in gold or blue as well as in a pure gold decoration.
