When Augarten unveiled this pattern in 1750, it was a moment of true innovation. It was created for a table service that Empress Maria Theresia obtained to decorate an Imperial hunting lodge – hence the combination of black brush drawings and hunting green paint. Today, we see how wonderfully this commission has aged. Each detail remains on this porcelain dessert plate, from the delicate hand-painting to the gold rim.

Augarten

This Vienna workshop defined baroque pottery in the 18th century, then reinvented itself as a purveyor of Modernism. Today Augarten's skilled ceramicists incorporate 300 years of design traditions in every dish, refining each piece by hand and etching it with the recognisable “Bindenschild” coat of arms.
