Arts & Culture


Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th April 2017

Meissen will be holding a spectacular two day event at Cliveden to launch their 2017 collection, the first time ever in the 300 year history of the company that this has been hosted outside Germany.

Meissen is Europe’s most tradition-rich house of fine art and hand-crafted luxury. In the 300 years and more since it was established by King Augustus the Strong in 1710, Europe’s first porcelain manufactory has evolved into an international luxury and lifestyle brand that enriches all spheres of life with its fine Joaillerie collection and its refined Home & Art collections.

During this wonderful event, guests will have the opportunity to have their own special personal items valued by a team of “Sotheby’s” specialists including Richard Hird, Specialist European Ceramics*. Asprey will also be launching their new “Meissen for Asprey” collection that has been developed exclusively for them. Come and meet the designer of the collection Hakan Rosenius, as well as experts and prominent figures from Sotheby’s, Asprey and Meissen.

Dress Code: Smart Casual

Includes: Champagne reception, a three-course lunch designed by André Garrett with wines, followed by coffee and bonbons and a goody bag to take home.
On the 4th April there will be fascinating talks from  Liane Werner, Export Director at Meissen Germany and from Richard Hird – Specialist European Ceramics at Sotheby’s. On 5th April enjoy talks from Liane Werner and Hakan Rosenius, Asprey’s Artistic Director.

Tickets: £99 per person and £89.10 per person for Cliveden Club Members and Dining Card Members and must be booked in advance. Subject to availability. Guests will be seated on shared tables of ten.
