Reichenbach: old craftsmanship meets modern design
The name Reichenbach has been closely linked to Thuringian porcelain painting since 1830. Artistic hand painting of the white porcelain piece and the trade in these products marked the first years of the Reichenbach porcelain tradition. In the year 1900 nine local porcelain painters joined together, founded a porcelain factory and laid the foundations for the factory on the current site.
