In the 17th and 18th centuries porcelain was viewed as a great luxury in Europe. Court society longed for everything rare, which porcelain was. It became the fashion for northern European rulers to install a porcelain room where every inch was covered by porcelain. Just as in our time, the ownership of such precious things demonstrated wealth, luxury, and culture. In 2000, Meissen visited L. V. Harkness & Company. They became enchanted with the Bluegrass region, its legends and its stories, and not long after their visit, created a new pattern, called "Bluegrass" on the Waves form. This they dedicated to L. V. Harkness to commemorate their visit. It is understandable that we are very proud of such an incredible honor. L.V. Harkness is also proud to have Meissen create "Jockey Birds" in honor of Kentucky's rich racing heritage. a very unique gift from the rolling hills of Kentucky.
