The Bohemian porcelain factory of Fischer & Mieg was founded in 1803 in Pirkenhammer, Bohemia, Austria by Johann Gottlob List and Friedrich Hocke. The company, known as Freidrich Hoche (or Hocke) was eventually sold to Fischer & Mieg in 1859. It enjoyed a reputation as one of the best porcelain manufacturers in Bohemia. Its products were prized for their translucent porcelain body, high quality glazes, and artistic designs.
