Legendary for craftsmanship and quality, Nymphenburg is the Bavarian royal family’s porcelain factory, acclaimed since its founding in 1747 for precious, handmade pieces. This new, comprehensively illustrated book shows how Nymphenburg developed its world-renowned reputation over almost 300 years, becoming synonymous with refinement, sophistication and brilliance in porcelain. With concise attention to detail, photographer Frank Stolle guides the reader through the entire factory (located since 1761 in the northern wing of the Nymphenburg Palace in Munich), covering the intricacies of molding, turning, luting, painting, firing, glazing and gilding. The factory’s master workshops own 15,000 color formulas and 30,000 different molds, and are still producing stylistically influential and custom works for artists, architects and designers from around the world.
