Vienna, Porcelain Museum
Vienna offers many original and unusual destinations, such as the charming Porcelain Museum. It is located in the Augarten, in the ancient royal residence, just outside the city center.
The museum traces the history of porcelain, from its origins to present days. Part of the collection is dedicated to the first porcelain factory of Vienna, which dates back to 1718 and was founded by Claudius Innocentius du Paquier. The factory then became imperial ownership in 1744. The second part of the exhibition focuses on the history of porcelain of XIX and XX century. The production of ’20s and ’30s is characterized by a refined design, and the most important designers of that period were Josef Hoffmann, Walter Bosse and Hertha Bucher.
