Works of art deserve the proper canvas. Display your edible masterpiece on porcelain worthy of your creation!

Seltmann, fine German porcelain, brings a standard to the industry that is rarely seen elsewhere. We have compiled a list of the Top 20 reasons to purchase Seltmann China, but for now let”s touch on a few that will solve some major problems in the industry.

First is consistency of shape and color. Due to Seltmann”s control of the manufacturing process and the quality of raw materials, they have the unique ability to guarantee that the shape, size, and color of each plate will be the same no matter from which batch it originates. What does their meticulous eye for detail mean to you? No more re-ordering plate covers because your “new” plates do not fit and no more mismatched dishes.

Second, Seltmann plates are ranked higher than metal on the Mohs scale. What this means for you? No more unsightly grey marks on your plates. Those grey marks on other brands, that will not come off, are caused by the metal residue that gets left behind in the scratches in the glaze.
