Dresden Quatrefoil Duo
Dresden porcelain refers more to an artistic movement than a particular porcelain company and is often confused with Meissen porcelain because Meissen blanks were used initially. Between 1855 and 1944 Dresden housed over 200 painting studios located near or in the city of Dresden and it was these studios that were responsible for Dresden Porcelain being so well known all over the world. The style, described as Rococo, is a mixture of Meissen and Vienna flower and figure painting.
