“White gold” from Frankenthal
In 1755, Carl Theodor granted Strasbourg porcelain manufacturer Paul Anton Hannong the privilege to build a factory in Frankenthal. In 1762 it became the property of the Elector. A few of these pieces are on display in the exhibition: for example filigree figures such as the couple “Oceanus and Tethys” and prestigious table pieces, as well as animals, including a rhinoceros! A charming new acquisition is a group of sleighs “with 2 people by horse” dating from 1763 and which once belonged to the palace's décor.
