Arabian Nights

Heinz Werner, a 20th-century Höroldt at MEISSEN®, injected the magic of the Orient onto Meissen Porcelain® with graphic art and painted designs from the Arabian Nights tales. Back in 1966 when the first ideas came to fruition, the artist could never have imagined what a huge success his oriental imagery was eventually to become.

Marking any truly great decorative range devised for Meissen Porcelain®, be it Höroldt’s chinoiseries or Werner’s eastern fairy-tale world, is a vibrant capacity for on-going development and change, for re-emerging in an endless succession of new colours and configurations to suit the shape to which it is married.
