Porcelain history

In 1887, watchmaker Ludwig Lindner set up Porcelain Factory Lindner
& Co, which in 1895 was sold to English Mosanic Pottery Max
Emanuel & Co based in London. They produced particularly for the
English market. During World War I, the company was liquidated because
of enemy property and, in 1917, a local group of investors took
over the business now operating under the name Porcelain Factory
Mitterteich AG. Following cessation of production in 2005, the brand
Mitterteich Porzellan with trademark rights and factory equipment
was taken over by a Turkish group.
Between 1899 and 1971, another porcelain factory was located in
Mitterteich. Founded by Julius and Fanny Rother, the business in
1904 went to Gustav Gerstner from Asch (Aš) and Julius Matthes,
who in 1918 sold it to Rieber from Selb.


The town’s porcelain tradition is carried on at the premises of former Porcelain Factory Mitterteich AG. After restoration of the area, there is now a museum with a café and porcelain factory sales. Original workbenches, old moulds, interviews with contemporary witnesses, documents and pictures tell the history of porcelain production in Mitterteich.
