Augarten Porcelain

Augarten porcelain was founded in 1718, it is famous for its delicate and graceful shapes and it is still produced and painted by hand in the manufactory at Augarten castle in the 2nd district. One of the windows of the new flagship store is currently decorated with the "Melon" coffee service, designed by Austrian architect and designer of consumer goods Josef Hoffmann in 1929.
