BOHEMIA CERAMIC WORKS:
"Bohemia" Ceramic Works AG, Nová Role, Czech Republic (Neurohlau, Bohemia, Austria)
Founded in 1921. From 1922 to 1945 Philip Rosenthal AG of Selb, Bavaria was a partner.
The factory produced household, hotel, and coffee and tea sets in porcelain. Products were imported to many countries including the United States. Starting in 1976 it produced an onion pattern.
The quality of its products was great enough that it was chosen as the factory to display porcelain dinnerware that Czechoslovakia displayed in their pavilion at the 1939 New York Worlds Fair.
Pickard China was incorporated in Edgerton, Wisconsin, in 1893. Wilder Austin Pickard (1857-1939) started the company in 1894 by offering his customers hand-painted giftware, artware, and eventually dinnerware of the highest quality. He moved the company to Chicago in 1897. The company was originally called Pickard China Studio and it specialized in hand decorating dessert and tea sets.
Pickard assembled a group of exceptionally talented men and women china painters, many emigrating from Europe, to create this uniquely American style of hand-painted china. Many of the original artists were from the Art Institute of Chicago. At first all the porcelain was manufactured in Europe. Pickard would import the blank plates and decorate them in their studio.
Wilder Pickard's son Austin Pickard began to work at the company and made the decision to begin manufacturing the blank plates and dishes themselves. In 1930 the first experimental china was made.
