Dubí House of Porcelain with Blue Blood

Porcelain exhibition of products from Dubí and Duchcov

Since autumn 2013, the first floor of the museum "House of Porcelain with Blue Blood" (short Modrodům) has been home to a permanent porcelain exhibition, which offers a cross-section of the history of porcelain production in the southern foothills of the Erzgebirge with a special focus on porcelain manufacturing in Dubí.

Porcelain has been decorated in Dubí since 1885 with a simple but richly modelled pattern, the Blue Onion pattern. The core of the exhibition consists of representative examples selected from an extensive porcelain collection, which today comprises almost seven hundred forms decorated with onion patterns. You can see the traditional onion decorated with underglaze cobalt blue on a porcelain rococo form. The name "porcelain with blue blood" also comes from this most used colour variant. However, there are also variants in which green or red was used instead of cobalt blue, as well as paintings in precious metal and ruby colours.

With the opening of Modrodům, Dubí joined the International Porcelain Route project (Bavaria and the Czech Republic) and became its last stop.

The building is barrier-free accessible.
