Dear clients and friends,

We hope that you are enjoying the final warm summer days as we do – as you might know even under these difficult circumstances over the past weeks and months we were keeping our doors opened for visitors at Brienner Strasse 25.

Except for the most early pieces and often overseen due to its nature as an ornament, floral décors and applications are present in many facets of 18th century porcelain. Graphical sources were the main contributor of décors for the skilled porcelain painters and craftsmen, as well as nature, which certainly has been studied carefully by the modellers in order to create countless varieties of flower bouquets and blossoms. Master modeller Kändler’s work reports contain endless mentions on the design and production of flowers. Porcelain groups, vases and especially French ormolu mounted objects with a large number of porcelain flowers added to their ornate appearance and raised the value for the mainly aristocratic clientele. To give you an impression please find attached a fine selection of 18th century pieces from our collection with a focus on floral design.

As a final note and reminder, the exhibition “The Making of Extravagance. Porcelain from Meissen and Chantilly” at the Domaine de Chantilly will be the grand finale of Röbbig’s collaboration this year with European museums and collections, opening September 5th 2020 until January 3rd, 2021.
We realise that travelling is difficult these days, but we hope you can support all the hard work and effort of the organisers of the exhibition by your visit.

With best regards
Alfredo Reyes & Michael Röbbig
