A little about what makes Meissen so special (from online information)-- "As the oldest trademark in Europe, the Crossed Swords from the coat of arms of the Electorate of Saxony have represented the exceptional quality of Meissen porcelain since 1722. To this day, the trademark is applied by hand to every piece of Meissen porcelain in the manufactory’s own cobalt blue by Meissen’s “swordsmen” – painters specializing in the Crossed Swords...Founded in 1710 by King Augustus the Strong, Meissen is the oldest porcelain manufactory in Europe and enjoys worldwide acclaim for its exceptional craftsmanship. Meissen and its crossed swords insignia are synonymous with the highest quality porcelain; every Meissen piece is entirely crafted in-house in the state of Saxony (Germany)."
