of the Company
The factory is often incorrectly claimed to have been
located in the town of Waldenburg (today Wałbrzych), but Hermann Ohme only had
a decoration studio there and his main factory actually was in Nieder-Salzbrunn
(today Sczawienko). Niedersalzbrunn was part of the town 'Bad Salzbrunn' (today
Szczawno-Zdrój) that included the town areas 'Obersalzbrunn', 'Niedersalzbrunn'
and 'Neu Salzbrunn'; Bad Salzbrunn itself is located in the former Waldenburg
Ohme mainly produced full dinner sets which were available
in two distinct types of porcelain. The so-called 'Clear Glaze' and 'Old Ivory'
wares were both made from the same quality of porcelain but the 'Old Ivory'
type received an additional light ivory colored matte glaze. The 'Clear Glaze'
type, decorated with a wide variety of floral and geometric patterns, was
produced for the European and the U.S. market; it was also the most produced
type as it was also sold as undecorated (or 'blank') porcelain in great
The customers for these blank products were not only
hobbyists, large numbers were purchased by commercial decorating firms such as
Pickard and Stouffer. For the U.S. market the 'Old Ivory' type always carried
the 'Old Ivory' brand name; other genuine 'Old Ivory' items (comparison
mold/decoration) can be found without the 'Old Ivory' mark and were mainly for
the British market. Blanks were also issued from this type of porcelain, but
they are quite rare.
In 1913 the company was owned by Hermann Ohme, E.M. Bauer
and Hermann Ohme jr. and together they further increased production for the
export market which later proved to be a fatal decision. Ignoring the first signs
of what later should become the World Financial Crisis the company tried to
further expand and in 1930 the number of employees reached a total of 400
people. As the company had only concentrated on export alone, business suddenly
dropped in the same way the financial market collapsed and the company was
forced to file for bankruptcy the same year.
