    maybe you can clear this up for me..what is the difference between Dresden &

    Good question. *LOL* My own understanding is that "Dresden" is sort of an overall (albeit misleading) term used for several different factories in the Dresden area of Germany. Coburg is the actual factory, in Coburg where the piece was made. You sometimes find Meissen listed as Meissen Dresden. Dresden is also sometimes used to refer to a type or style, rather than an actual factory. You can read more about it here:

    Hi Phiiligirl

    The term Dresden porcelain was indeed given to porcelain produced in the City of Dresden during the 19th and into the 20th century. During the war, Dresden was obliterated by the English and almost all of the items produced and the porcelain factories that made them were wiped out. Makers such as Helena Wolfsohn, Richard Klemm, Ambrosius Lamm and Donath were the very best of independent decorators operating in Dresden during the early to mid 19th century. I personally own a few pieces of Dresden porcelain by Helena Wolfsohn who was considered the cream of the crop of independent decorators operating in Dresden during the 1840's onwards. Pieces of Dresden are definitely worth collecting and something to cherish
