So what can offer The House of the Porcelain with Blue Blood within its exhibition?
The Onion Pattern - boasting of Dubí
Colored simple but richly modeled onion pattern that evokes a feeling of harmony and well-being is decorated on Dubí china since 1885. The core of the exhibition is representative specimens selected from an extensive porcelain collection to which today includes nearly seven hundred shapes decorated by onion pattern. You will see the traditional porcelain under glaze decorated by onion pattern with cobalt blue on shape to Rococo. Also you can see the variants where instead of cobalt blue color were used for decoration under glaze color green or red, and onion pattern coloured with precious metals and ruby colors. Under glaze decoration in cobalt blue is represented also by decoration called Immortelle and decor Eco on the shape called Prague.
Subjected porcelain decorated with onion pattern is complemented by the products of decorative porcelain figures currently produced by porcelain manufactory of Duchcov, a subsidiary factory of the Bohemian Porcelain, Inc. in Dubí.
