Dresden Repair and Restoration
During the nineteenth century and the period of Romanticism, Dresden, Germany became an important cultural center that attracted painters, sculptors and porcelain decorators. In 1883, four ceramic decorators registered the blue crown Dresden mark to sign their pieces. The term Dresden now refers to any china or porcelain ware made in Dresden and features the Dresden Mark featuring the words “Dresden, Germany” and a crown.
Dresden style is described as “rococo revival,” meaning it refers to the artificial grottoes decorated with irregularly shaped seashells and stones popular during the Renaissance. Dresden artists used this style to design fanciful china complete with an abundance of flowers, foliage, fruits, scrolls and shells.
In addition to china, lace porcelain figures were produced in Dresden during this time using a unique technique called “Dresden Lace.” In this method, real lace is dripped with liquid porcelain and then applied by hand to the figurines. This produces a delicate appearance that is nearly indistinguishable from fabric.
