Specialist Collection

Porzellanikon’s porcelain collection is like no other in all of Europe. It contains around 250,000 objects from the 18th century to the present, with the main focus of the collection being on industrially manufactured products of the 19th to 21st century.

The majority of the porcelain objects come from German-speaking countries such as Austria and Switzerland as well as from Silesian and Bohemian industry production up until 1945. The collection considers all facets of porcelain – from everyday dishes to decorative articles, figurines or porcelain for advertising purposes and much, much more.

The product archives of Rosenthal AG and Hutschenreuther AG on permanent loan from the Oberfrankenstiftung Bayreuth greatly enrich the collection. Both archives comprise thousands of objects and include highlights from the company history.

The specialist collection in Hohenberg gives visitors insight into part of the vast store of items.
