Ludwigsburger Porzellan-Fabrik

Ludwigsburger Porzellan-Fabrik, (1744-1805 ),Germany.

Ludwigsburg was one of the leading European manufacturers of porcelain.
In 1744 Duke Carl Eugen declared the founding of the Ludwigsburger Porzellan-Fabrik.
Ludwigsburg porcelain had a grey-brown color, unlike the white of other German porcelains. The kaolin used was brought in from Hornberg and produced a very malleable body clay, well-suited to the figural work Ludwigsburg produced and that Duke Carl Eugen preferred. Riedel designed the forms and ornaments. The painter Steinkopf, preferred to decorate in landscapes and equine subjects.
