It was already in 1864 when the industrialist from Dubí Anton Tschinkel bought a large building called Lower Forest Mill in present Tovární street in Dubí near Teplice and rebuilt it into a Majolica manufacture.
In 1885, the firm O. C. Teuchert from the near Meissen purchased the factory from him and started there production of porcelain in Rococo style with so called “onion” pattern.
Now, when you read this introduction, the company’s name is Český porcelán and the number of pieces with the onion design achieves 660 shapes. These products are guaranteed by the Association of Glass and Ceramic Industry of the Czech Republic as a “Czech Product”.
Onion” decoration is based on depicturing and linking of simplified vegetal motifs on the background of Eastern Asian philosophy, however adjusted to the European style and approach. This was the concept of its inventor in 1729 Johan David Kretschmar who was one of the group of designers in the first European porcelain factory in Meissen.
Porcelain with “onion pattern” has been produced and delivered by the company since 1885 first under the name MEISSEN and since 1956 under the trademark ZWIEBELMUSTER. The company has therefore been, for decades or even centuries, among 4 manufactures in the world which maintain the so called under-glaze technology.
