Volkstedt porcelainFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaLeda and the Swan, Volkstedt porcelain,c1785 (Kunstgewerbemuseum Berlin)

Volkstedt porcelain manufacturysited inRudolstadt,Thuringia, Germany, was theearliest porcelain manufactory in Thuringia.[1]It is still in business asAelteste Volkstedter Porzellanmanufaktur, the "Oldest Volkstedt Porcelain Manufactory", which is integrated into the VEB Vereinigte Zierporzellanwerke Lichte, which in turn forms part of theKombinat Feinkeramik Kahla.[2]

The factory had its origins in an official request made 8 September 1760 by the porcelain makerGeorg Heinrich Macheleid(1723-1801). Macheleid had long worked in the glass manufactory atGlücksthaland had gained the arcana of porcelain-making by his own researches, apparently independent ofEhrenfried Walther von TschirnhausandJohann Friedrich Böttger, the ceramists atMeissen. He wished to open a privileged porcelain factory, making truehard-paste porcelain, intended to be sited inSitzendorf.[3]In 1762 the privilege was granted byJohann Friederich, Fürst von Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt, a great patron of the arts and music, specifying that the manufactory was to be set up near his princely court ofSchwarzburg-Rudolstadt, under his personal direction.

Volkstedt gained a reputation for its finely painted and carefully modeled porcelain figures that it holds for collectors today.

In 1797Ernest Constantine, Landgrave of Hesse-Philippsthal, acquired the porcelain manufactory in Volkstedt, which he sold two years later. Following the reunification of Germany, in 2006/07 the factory buildings were restored to their 18th-century appearance and opened to the public.

During the 19th century the manufactory attracted subsidiary and rival workshops in Rudolstadt: they included Beyer & Bock, Karl Ens, Kämmer & Kramer, Ernst Bohne Söhne, Műller & Hammer.

Marks, in underglaze blue, include the ubiquitouscrowned Nadopted fromCapodimonteby many manufactories,closed crownandR(Rudostadt) withcrossed swords(adopted fromMeissen) or1762.
