History: The history of the factory dates back to 1792 when Johann Georg Paulus initiated its founding and in the next year, along with partners J. Pöschl and J. Reumann, began operations. After several years of unsuccessful attempts to produce porcelain, they decided to sell the factory. The factory was bought in 1800 by Luise Sophie Greiner, but her attempt also turned out to be unsuccessful. The turning point was the arrival of her son Johann Georg Lippert, a surgeon from Slavkov, along with Wenzel Haas. Since 1808 the company has been known as Lippert & Haas. By 1819 the company already had a representative office in Vienna (later also in Prague, Brno and Budapest) and in 1831 C. K. Ministry of the Treasury in Vienna said that the products of Schlaggenwald exceeded the quality of Vienna products. The company was appointed as the official supplier of porcelain in 1812 to Emperor Francis I of Austria and his daughter Marie Louise. August Haas died in 1867 and his heir was his son, Georg Haas, who accepted as a partner Johann Cžjžek and the factory was branded with the name of Haas & Cžjžek. After buying a factory in Chodov (Chodau), the company then employed a total of over 1000. In 1908, on the day of the 60th birthday of Emperor Franz Joseph I, title of nobility were granted to Georg Baron Haas von Hassenfeld and J.B. Cžjžek Adler von Smidaich (www.porcelainzone.com/en/factories/haas-czjzek-schlaggenwald). Royal Vienna is the generic name given to items made in a particular decorative style reminiscent of Renaissance paintings and sculptures. Strong elements of Greek Classicism are almost always present and the colour palette seems to be dominated by soft hues and romantic vibrancy. Gilding and elaborate border designs, and sometimes even Ormolu or Metal Mounts, were frequent decorative details that enhanced the superb painting and colours on Royal Vienna antiques. Almost all Royal Vienna porcelain was meant primarily for display and adoration, with the notable exception of some super-fine chinaware that most likely is used quite rarely and on very auspicious occasions. The original and authentic Imperial & Royal Vienna "beehive mark" on porcelain is never symmetrical and is always under-glazed in blue or impressed, with very few exceptions. However, the most common beehive mark used on items in the same style, but made ca 19th century and onwards. The vast majority and most desired Royal Vienna porcelain items are those made from the 1870s to the 1930s. This period witnessed the peak of their production by hundreds of companies & porcelain studios. ***Notice, please, that each computer monitor is different and the real colors may slightly vary*** ****The item will be carefully packed and sent with a tracking number *** ♥ Feel free to contact me and ask any question(s) about this item!♥
