FACTORY SITZENDORF (SITZENDORF)
In 1845, Liebermann founded a porcelain factory in the Thuringian town of Sitzendorf, which in 1850 passed to the Voight brothers. At the end of the 19th century, the company of the Voight brothers became a joint-stock company, and in 1953 the factory was nationalized.
The basis of the production was a sculpture made in the Meissen style - individual figures and groups. The Figures of dancers and the composition "Orchestra of Frogs" are especially famous. The sculpture was produced both in bisque and covered with highly artistic painting.
In addition to sculpture, decorative porcelain, vases, and candlesticks were made in Sitzendorf. Factory products were awarded gold medals at exhibitions in Erfurt (1894) and Turin (1911).
The products of the factory were widely exported to other countries.
