The porcelain collection belongs to the Dresden State Art Collections and is located in the Zwinger. It is owed to the passion of Augustus the Strong for the "white gold", who even traded some of his soldiers for Chinese porcelain. On display are some 20,000 works of art, including the finest porcelain pieces from China and Japan acquired by the Elector of Saxony, as well as unique Saxon pieces from the Meissen porcelain manufactory.
