Porcelain services, figures and objects of the greatest quality and purity have been produced at just this one location in the world the Nördliches Schlossrondell in Nymphenburg since the 18th century. Porcelain was a highly desirable commodity during the baroque period. At the time, porcelain only came from China and so, during the 18th century, attempts were undertaken in Europe to produce the "white gold".The fragile and gentle character of porcelain did not only meet the aesthetic of the time it also reflected the preference for everything gallant and playful. Which remains the case to this day as experts and collectors of Nymphenburg porcelain see its quality and refinement as unique. Soon after being established, Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg started to successfully cooperate with famous artists a cooperation that continues to this day. For instance, the company achieved world renown with Franz Anton Bustelli from Ticino, who as the model master assumed the artistic directorship at the company from 1754. His rococo designs, and particularly his main body of work the 16 figures from the Commedia dell'Arte count undisputedly among the most artistic pieces of his time. Under Bustelli's management, the electoral "Rokoko" service was designed in cooperation with the painter, Joseph Zächenberger, which in the next generation was succeeded by the "Bayrische Königsservice" ("Royal Bavarian Service") based on a design by Dominikus Auliczek. This service possessing the "Perl" shape, which was for the first time based on a 12-sided pattern, was until 1900 reserved exclusively for the Bavarian court.
In the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th century, it was such people as Friedrich von Gärtner, Adelbert Niemeyer, Josef Wackerle and Wolfgang von Wersin who continued to promote the manufactory's renown even through financially difficult times. From 1888, Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg was managed and rebuilt as an ordinary partnership by the Bäuml family until it was transferred to the Wittelsbacher Ausgleichfonds (Equalising Fund) in 1975.
