A good 50 years after the invention of porcelain by Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus and Johann Friedrich Böttger, Wolfgang Hammann from Katzhütte and his son founded the Wallendorf porcelain factory on March 30, 1764, after he was granted the license to manufacture porcelain in the Duchy of Saxony-Coburg. As early as 1780, by using Bohemian kaolin, Hammann succeeded in producing a strikingly pure white body that was “dazzling white, finely ground and so hard that there are sparks on the steel”. The Wallendorf porcelain manufactory was owned by the founding family until 1833 and then passed through the hands of experienced porcelain makers such as Hutschenreuther, Kampf, Sonntag, Heubach, Frauenreuth and Schaubach. This also explains the large number of floor brands used, which at times were strongly reminiscent of the Meissen trademark. 200 years after the founding of the Wallendorf porcelain factory, the current “W” brand was finally introduced. A “W” under a crossed helmet crown and the year of foundation 1764.
