Wonderfully decorated is this Bavaria Winterling Porzellan Germany Floral Plaque, circa 1980-90's.
The Winterling brothers were from the same family as Heinrich Winterling who since 1903 owned a porcelain factory in Marktleuthen (Bavaria) with the name of ⇒Heinrich Winterling G.m.b.H. & Co. K.G.. The company history started here in Röslau, located in the heart of the so-called 'Fichtelgebirge' in the Upper Franconia area of Bavaria, where the seven Winterling brothers founded the Gebrüder Winterling ⇒O.H.G. in 1907 with a newly built facility for porcelain production. As business went well straight from the beginning, the facility was upgraded and expanded quite often. In 1917, the company took over the ⇒Porzellanfabrik Oscar Schaller & Co. in Schwarzenbach (Bavaria). The upward trend was so promising that they bought and converted the textile factory in ⇒Kirchenlamitz (Bavaria) in 1920 and took over the company ⇒Porzellanfabrik Eduard Haberländer in Windischeschenbach (Upper Franconia, Bavaria) in 1929. These extensions of the parent firm were all kept under the name of Oscar Schaller & Co. ⇒Nachfolger.
In 1950 the company reached corporation status and gave out shares, the main shareholders being the Winterling family members themselves. All daughter companies were re-named to Gebrüder Winterling A.G. and the marks used up until then were changed. In 1954 they opened the fifth facility in ⇒Bruchmühlbach, located in the Rhineland-Palatinate. In this facility the company produced earthenware up until 1995 when it was closed. But then the Winterling luck ran out. The Winterling Porzellan A.G. in Kirchenlamitz tumbled into insolvency due to family arguments and the facility in Röslau (with over 500 workers) was threatened by closure. Finally in November 2000 the corporation was officially declared bankrupt and taken over by the ⇒Triptis Porzellan G.m.b.H. & Co. K.G. in Triptis (Thuringia).
