Our porcelain parrots museum brings together a unique collection of artistic works created over three centuries by great masters of the art of porcelain.

This singular museum brings together a unique collection of works of art made by the great masters of porcelainware over the last three centuries. Porcelain, also known as “white gold”, was traditionally Chinese before the 18th century, but the porcelain as we know it today was reinvented in 1708 in Europe by Johann Friedrich Böttger, a member of the court of Augustus the Mighty of Saxony and it was in 1710 that the first porcelain factory in Europe was founded in the German city of Meissen. Until this time the manufacture of everyday objects was limited but this soon changed and in the years to follow pieces of art such as the parrot figures to be seen in our museum were produced.
