The Unterweissbacher workshops for porcelain art, which belong to the "Thuringian Culture Circle of Porcelain", were founded in 1882 by Hermann Jost and are today among the most famous manufacturers of exquisite porcelain art in the world. The location in the Thuringian Forest inspired the porcelain artists to create works that have rural and idyllic themes and, above all, hunting scenes.
Magnificent groups such as the carriage of Louis XIV or gallant motifs such as “Jägerliebe” are characterized by their special artistic sensitivity and attest to the high status of this Thuringian manufactory. Handicraft is still very important today. Even the tiniest details are shaped by hand, put together precisely and artistically painted in order to achieve an absolutely natural, harmonious overall impression.
