A lucky chance brought Johann Gregorius Höroldt to the newly formed Meissen
As porcelain decoration was a completely new phenomenon in Europe in the 1700s, Höroldt also had the opportunity to establish a new decorative vocabulary for the medium. In addition to imitating the ornament of Chinese and Japanese porcelain, he developed his own style of flowers and delicate chinoiserie scenes. He also established a workshop system so that all the painters under him in the workshop had access to his designs and could copy them.
After the arrival of the modeler Johann Joachim Kändler at Meissen, Höroldt's influence decreased. Kändler's new, complex forms allowed less space for Höroldt's surface decoration.
