- Item details
In 1913, the owner of the porcelain manufactory Burgau ad Saale, Ferdinand Selle, turned to the Weimar architect and designer Henry Van de Velde for models and designs for his production.
Van de Velde responded to this request and made a design for a coffee and tea service, which, however, did not enter series production due to the outbreak of the First World War and the early death of Selles and is therefore present today only in a few individual pieces.
In 1996, the Jena City Museum was able to acquire the service in polished gold from the estate of a Weimar student Van de Veldes. In 2007, on the occasion of the 750th anniversary of Burgau, the tea service was revitalized and made available as a replica to a broader public.
Height 6 cm, white porcelain with golden border pattern

Made in the porcelain manufactory Reichenbach GmbH

- Store Information
The legendary design school, the Bauhaus, was founded in 1919 in Weimar. Architects and artists such as Gropius, Feininger, Klee, Itten and many more were there from the beginning and shaped a then revolutionary understanding of new architecture, design and art in all fields.
Today, the Bauhaus is part of 11 UNESCO World Heritage sites in Weimar. The Klassik Stiftung Weimar owns the oldest collection of Bauhaus exhibits worldwide - and a new Bauhaus Museum is currently being built in Weimar, which will open its doors in spring 2019 for its 100th anniversary.
As a subsidiary company of Klassik Stiftung Weimar, we operate our own Bauhaus Store in a central location at the Weimar market place. An we look forward to the opening of the new museum, which of course will also receive an inspiring Museumshop.
