Editor's Note

Inspired by a cherished tradition dating back to the late 18th century, this timeless motif gained royal favour when Queen Marie Antoinette adorned her retreat, the Petit Trianon, with scattered cornflowers in 1781. 

Over time, the vibrant blue of these wild field flowers captivated Vienna, gracing the tableware of diplomats and personal coffee cups alike. Symbolising luck and prosperity during the Biedermeier period, the cornflower held deep significance in the floral language of the era.

Characterised by its timeless silhouettes and delicate ornamental flourishes, the Cornflower collection continues to epitomise the elegance of Viennese porcelain, carrying on a legacy of sophistication and refinement.

The Designer

Founded in 1718, Augarten Wien is Vienna’s oldest and most prestigious porcelain manufacturer. For the last three centuries, Augarten has become renowned for achieving perfection in the handcrafting technique and intricate painting of its exquisite porcelain.

From Russian and Japanese Emperors, to the engagement and wedding services of Queen Marie Antoinette and Napoleon Bonaparte, Augarten is accustomed to producing bespoke porcelain of the highest standard for the Royalty and well-known names such as Jackie Kennedy, who attended the castle in June of 1961.

Since the opening of their manufactory, Augarten have strived towards being consistently ground-breaking in design and technique, creating countless unique and beautiful collaborations. In the Art Deco period of the 1920s, Augarten worked with Josef Hoffmann and other artists from the Weiner Werkstätte to create a vast and iconic anthology of pivotal designs, such as the Melon collection, that have stood the test of time and are still immensely popular today. This century, Augarten is proud to grace tables across the world with exquisitely handcrafted bespoke porcelain, satisfying the most modern of tastes whilst revelling in a rich history and tradition.
