Porcelain production in the municipality of Wallendorf, Thuringia was a booming enterprise in 18th century Germany, and many notable makers, among them Wallendorf, Limbach and Volkstedt, were well known for making quality wares that were accessible to the common classes. From 1913 to 1972 the Bock Wallendorf factory of Fasold & Stauch produced fine porcelain pieces in this centuries-old tradition.
