House of Ireland is delighted to present here some of the finest Irish Dresden pieces to add to any collection.

The process of making Irish Dresden was first discovered in the ancient town of Messier near Dresden in Germany in the early 18th Century. In the late 19th Century Anton Muller, a talented young artist, established a workshop in Volkstedt and quickly gained a reputation for his fine lace figurines. Following the Second World War, family members were forced to leave what was then East Germany and the current Irish Dresden company was established at Dromcolliher, County Limerick establishing in Ireland the traditions and skills of fine lace porcelain manufacture. Today Irish Dresden is revered throughout the world for the skilled craftsmanship and uniqueness of its figurines. Real Cotton lace impregnated with porcelain clay is used to dress the figurines and hand made porcelain flowers or other decorations are added. They are then glazed and each piece is hand painted by craftsmen.
