"White gold" from Frankenthal
In 1755, Carl Theodor bestowed upon the Strasbourg porcelain factory of Paul Anton Hannong the privilege of building a factory in Frankenthal. In 1762, it became the property of the prince-electors. Some of these pieces can be seen in the exhibition, such as filigree figurines like the pair of "Oceanus and Tethys," representational centerpieces and animal figurines. The rhinoceros originally had a clock on its back and stood in the prince-elector's bedroom! A charming new purchase is the sleigh group "with 2 people and a horse" from 1763, which was once part of the palace furnishings.
