Since 1872, ornamental and luxury porcelain of the highest quality has been produced in Freital-Potschappel, just outside the royal seat of Dresden.
A visit to the factory outlet in the listed Gründerzeit building takes you on a journey back in time. In baroque, magnificent chandeliers, in openwork baskets garnished with forget-me-nots, in elaborately painted boxes and bowls, and in beautifully shaped plain white vases and service pieces, visitors can still find many of the ideas that highly talented porcelain craftsmen have realized over the past 146 years. The assortment ranges from huge floor vases to thimbles and delights interior decorators, collectors and gift seekers alike.

The "Sächsische Porzellan-Fabrik von Carl Thieme zu Potschappel-Dresden" was opened by the Dresden porcelain painter Carl Gottlieb Thieme in 1872 in the wake of the spirit of optimism of the Gründerzeit. The street at the factory is named after him today.
