Konitz Porzellan was founded in 1909 as a porcelain factory with four circular kilns. The first products – cups, mugs, bowls, etc. – were mainly shipped to England. Because of their quality, they rapidly expanded into other international markets, survived occupation by the Soviets after WWII, subsequent liberation in the 80's, reorganization and finally privatization in the late 90's. Throughout its turbulent history the company and its skilled workers continued to produce high quality porcelain items and today enjoys a world-wide reputation for its high quality porcelains which are now produced in Asia, Australia and Germany to service customers everywhere.
