Nymphenburg Porcelain from the sky
White and blue, like a pure and elated sky, like the colors of Bavaria's coat of arms and like Nymphenburg's porcelain.
Its name comes directly from the castle which has harbored the manufacture since 1761, a location chosen by Maximilien III Joseph of Bavaria himself. Soon, the factory became the royal court’s supplier of porcelain services and interior ornaments. The craftsmanship of those objects has been transmitted from one generation to another, and the pieces are still, to this day, executed with the same traditional and artisanal savoir-faire.
Franz Anton Bustelli's rococo statuettes brought fame and glory to the Maison which has also developed collaborations with worldwide designers, such as Karl Lagerfeld, Vivienne Westwood and Gareth Pugh.
One of the leading products of the company is Clara the rhino. A china rhinoceros inspired by a statuette created by Peter Anton von Verschaffet near 1770, available at Leclaireur Sévigné.
