History of the Company
Germany / Bavaria / Marktredwitz:
There are two different stories about the early years of the
company and many sources copied Roentgen's incorrect statement that the first
company existed between 1898 and 1902 before Thomas left. That however is
highly improbable as the mark registrations for the 'J&C' mark were applied
for and filed under the registrar 'Porzellanfabrik Marktredwitz Jaeger &
Co. c/o F. Jaeger' in 1898. Also one can find advertisements from 1900 that
clearly state 'Porzellanfabrik Jaeger & Co' only. In both cases it is
obvious that the name Thomas at that time was already missing from the company
name. Roentgen of course completely ignores these facts and prefers to hold on
to his own view of things, including incorrect claims regarding certain
distributor additons (see 'Mark Comments' below).
Porzellanfabrik Jaeger, Thomas & Co. (1872 until 1898)
The company was founded in 1872 as small decoration company
but soon started to successfully produce its own large array of tableware,
coffee- and tea sets as well as giftware. During the first few years everything
looked fine and even in 1897 'Jaeger, Thomas & Co.' received a brand new
90hp steam engine produced by the Maschinenfabrik, Eisengießerei und
Kesselschmiede Heinrich Rockstroh, also located in Marktredwitz. But after
various disputes with Jaeger regarding the product range and funding of special
projects Fritz Thomas decided to leave the company and after extensive talks
with Ens as potential partner finally quit in 1898, in 1903 founding the
Porzellanfabrik Thomas & Ens.
Porzellanfabrik Marktredwitz, Jaeger & Co. (1898 until
Following the departure of Thomas the factory itself was
slightly modernized and slowly expanded, by 1913 already employing around 400
workers. Over the years the factory flourished and even a small fire on
February 9th 1923 could not hinder its progress. In the year 1930 the by then
Councillor of Commerce ('Kommerzienrat') Fritz Jaeger employed 500 workers
including those working in an own decoration studio in the city of München
During the period until 1945 the factory had contracts with
many US companies like Geo. H. Bowman Co. from Cleveland, Ohio, and directly
supplied various US decoration studios like Caine's Studio from Akron, Ohio.
Following the war however the Jaeger business mostly concentrated on the German
market, trying to recapture shares it had lost in previous years before the
Jaeger Porzellan G.m.b.H. (1979 until 1986)
The year 1979 saw the factory and all assets being sold to the
Sebring company from the town of Bari in Italy which itself was part of the
Tognana Group. One may speculate why they purchased the factory in the first
place as it was literally left to die, finally closing in 1986.
