After his untimely death that October, Johann Friedrich Böttger, continued his work and brought porcelain to the market, and he has often been credited with the invention. Meissen was founded in in the gothic Albrechtburg castle. It was the first porcelain manufacturer in Europe. Originally situated in Dresden, in the factory was moved to the Albrechtsburg in Meissen, where it was more secure and easier to guard the secret of hard paste porcelain. Initial production was, for the most part, red Böttger.

Meissen used a variety of factory and maker’s marks from its inception, but the famous crossed-swords didn’t become the official Meissen mark until Since , and to this day, the crossed-swords Meissen mark has always been a hand-painted blue under-glaze mark. The Meissen “Blue Onion,” or Zwiebelmuster, pattern was first produced in the early s and was modeled after the imported blue and white porcelain produced in China. A close look at pieces from this line reveal that no onions actually appear in the design. Meissen china’s rarity and expense made it one of the most sought-after products for the upper classes. They frequently received orders from elite families in Russia, England, and France. Many of these family collections of Meissen figurines have since been donated to some of the world's greatest museums including Musée des Arts Décoratifs.
