The Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten ("Augarten porcelain manufactory") is named after the palais and park where it is located in Leopoldstadt, Vienna, Austria.
The Vienna Porcelain Manufactory was the second porcelain manufactory to be established in Europe.
Dating back to a privilege given by the emperor to Claudius Innocentius du Paquier in 1718, it is, after Meissen porcelain, Europe's second oldest producer of hard-paste porcelain. Since 1744, Augarten pieces bear the shield from the coat of arms of the Dukes of Austria as a trademark.
In 1784, Conrad von Sorgenthal became director. Sorgenthal led the factory to dramatic changes in styles and techniques. Some of these new features included an identifiable influence of Greek art forms.
