Established in 1718, Augarten Wien is Vienna's longest-standing and most prestigious porcelain manufacturer. Over the course of three centuries, Augarten has built an international reputation for meticulous handcrafting and elaborate painting.
Augarten is accustomed to producing bespoke porcelain of the highest standard for Royalty and well-known names such as Jackie Kennedy.
Augarten has worked to push the boundaries of design and manufacturing to provide an endless stream of unique, aesthetically pleasing partnerships. Augarten collaborated with Josef Hoffmann and other artists from the Weiner Werkstätte during the Art Deco era of the 1920s. In the twenty-first century, Augarten is thrilled to have their bespoke porcelain adorn tables all over the globe, catering to the most cutting-edge aesthetics while honouring centuries of tradition.
The border of green leaves in two shades is reminiscent of an evergreen myrtle wreath. A service with these myrtle leaves, framed by golden ribbons, was ordered around 1790 by Joseph Count Dietrichstein for his Brno palace. In the following two decades, numerous variations of the leaf décor were created; after all, the myrtle was an attribute of Venus and just right for the Romantic era, in which love and friendship were among the highest ideals. The "Schubert" shape, created in 1923, with its classical silhouettes and discreet ornamental details, is still a classic of Viennese porcelain today.
