    Some history...
    The Schönwald Porcelain Factory was established in 1879 when Johann Nicol Müller converted his saw mill into a porcelain factory. In the beginning it was the two-kiln manufactory. Already in 1896 the factory used seven kilns and the workforce grew to 340 employees. Johann Nicol Müller died this year and the company was taken over by his sons, Friedrich and Michael Müller. Two years later the company was converted into a joint-stock company (Aktiengesellschaft Porzellanfabrik Schönwald). In 1927 the Porzellanfabrik Schönwald AG was acquired by Porzellanfabrik Kahla located in German Thuringia. After the WWII when Germany was divided into two states, the Kahla porcelain factory’s head office was moved to Schönwald. In 1959 old round kilns were abandoned and porcelain started to be fired in three tunnel kilns. In 1972 the company merged with Hutschenreuther AG. Four years later was built the new factory where were transferred operations of previously separated production facilities. In 1998 Hutschenreuther AG changed its name to BHS tabletop AG, after selling its “household” brands.
    We sell select vintage items. They are not new, and rarely look new. They are, in many cases, older than we are, and have seen life and times. We do not repair or replace parts on any of the items we sell. They came to us in the condition they are now, and are sold as is.

    When we say an item is in “excellent vintage condition”, we mean just that – it is in excellent condition for its age.
