Johann Friedrich Bottger created a white porcelain in a Dresden, Germany, laboratory in 1709 that rang out with a clear and bright tone. A porcelain factory was founded in Meissen in 1710 and started production.

Meanwhile, in 1722, the Meissen Manufacturing Company introduced the concept of trademark rights for the first time by drawing a blue sword mark that assumed the Saxony region.

On this page, I listed some marks from my collection and similar marks of Meissen.

And I will tell you the meaning of two scratches.

Meissen porcelain can be found in the World Ceramic Hall of the National Museum of Korea.

You can see the Zwiebelmuster, known as the "blue onion flower" design, which was designed in 1739 by the Meissen porcelain factory.

You can see two incised lines that indicate a factory second.
It's really hard to find flaws. Anyway, it's not the first quality.

These marks are very similar or indicate I am "Meissen", but they are not.
In my opinion, even though they are not Meissen, Some of them are very old and nice.
