The production of porcelain at Meissen started in 1710 and still in business today. Its signature logo, the crossed swords, was introduced in 1720. The first type of porcelain produced by Böttger was a refined and extremely hard red stoneware. The production was limited to individual pieces, entire services were not made. J.J. Irminger designed many vessels in the baroque style. His specialties was decoration called "overlay". J.B. Thomae was most important designer next to J.J. Irminger. J.G. Funke was the chief gold painter.
