In 2010 the 19th century Zsolnay porcelain factory in Pécs, Hungary was revived, offering visitors a fabulous opportunity to view the 600-piece historic collection of the stunning production produced here, including eosin glazing and pyrogranite ceramics, as well as a look at the manufacture of Zsolnay ceramics today. The cultural complex here is a treasure.

Background
During World War II, the Zsolnay factory begiun in 1853 in Budapest was bombed and later nationalized under communism and relegated to producing common tableware goods. In 1982 the company regained operational independence and reinstated the Zsolnay name. In 2012, a Swiss-Syrian businessman, Bachar Najari, bought the company from the city of Pécs. Zsolnay is renown for its secret eosin glaze that makes porcelain appear iridescent metallic and changing color in different light.
