Our Story

The History of Irish Dresden

Irish Dresden, formerly Müller Volkstedt, was established 1907 in Thuringia, in a region known as the green heart of Germany and moved with the Saar family in 1962 to Ireland. We settled in the small town of Dromcolliher, situated on the Cork border in the beautiful Golden Vale region.

We invite you to visit Dromcolliher and our factory and see for yourself our highly experienced team handcrafting magnificent porcelain figurines and other fine porcelain giftware.
