Description

The Volkstedt Porcelain Manufactury in Rudolstadt, Thuringia, Germany, was the first porcelain factory in Thuringia. The company continues to operate today, as the Aelteste Volkstedter Porzellanmanufaktur, the "oldest Volkstedt Porcelain Manufactory." In 1760, it was established by Georg Heinrich Macheleid in Sitzendorf. Two years later, it was relocated to Volkstedt. From 1767 - 1800 the factory was leased and run by Christian Nonne. It was owned by a consortium of noblemen including Macheleid and Prince Johann Friedrich of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt.
From 1800 - 1815 the factory was owned by Greiner & Holzapfel. From 1815 - 1877 it passed to various owners and managers. From 1877 - 1894 it was owned by Triebnert Ens & Eckert. Then from 1894 - 1900 it changed to Triebner Ens & Co.
During the time period described above, many different variations of the "Hayfork" mark appeared in Volkstedt porcelain factories. Macheleid's porcelain factory used a crossed hayfork mark during the first years of Volkstedt. Another version of the crossed hayforks was used at the factory between 1760 - 1787. A single hayfork was utilized from 1787 - 1799, and a clover shaped mark was used from about 1790. Then the two hayfork marks (point to tail) were used on late 19th Century pieces. This mark connected by two crosshatched lines was utilized by the main Volkstedt factory of Triebner Ens & Eckert from 1877 - 1894. This same mark along with other hayfork marks were also used by the Volkstedter Porzellanfabrik Richard Eckert & Co. from 1894 - 1918.
After Richard Eckert departed from the partnership that owned the main factory in Volkstedt, he established another in the village of Volkstedt and reused several of the marks that were utilized at the main factory. It's extremely challenging to differentiate and identify which of the two factories made this unique vase, but I know that it was produced in Volkstedt, as early as 1877 to 1918 at the latest.
This lovely vase features a young boy perched atop the vase between the two horns, and remains in extraordinary condition. There are no chips, cracks or faults observed. It measures 5.0" inches high x 5.5" inches wide. It may have had a companion vase with it at one point in time. It has been gently and thoroughly cleaned and is ready for your home.
