Lustheim Palace is home to the world famous Meißen Porcelain Collection of industrialist Dr. Ernst Schneider. A special focus lies on the rich diversity and  ingenuity of the manufacture's early years in the mid-18th century.

The exhibition shows crockery and figurines of the Böttger period, the Chino series of the porcelain painter Johann Gregorius Höroldt, “Indian” decors as well as animal figurines by Johann Joachim Kändler. Selected highlights include the dinner service of count Sulkowski and the swan service of count Brühl. Both transcend a splendor and glory of baroque dining and festive culture.
