About C. Teichert – Zwiebelmuster – Antique Cake Platter

Zwiebelmuster or the Onion Pattern is the most well known and likely the most produced dinnerware design in the world.

The original design was an 18th century German interpretation of a Chinese plate design made at the royal porcelain factory in Meissen. The design is not protected and most German porcelain facties produced their version at some point.

The Teichert factory was also based in Meissen, it started as a wood stove factory in 1857. The factory was set up by Carl Teichert and ventured into producing porcelain in 1879. His brother Ernst Teichert first worked for the factory but started a porcelain factory in Cologne himself. Later, in 1930 the two companies merged under the name of Teichert Werke Meissen. The brand is also known as ‘Stadt Meissen’.
The company owned the rights to call their wares after the town that was already synonymous with porcelain for two centuries, even though they later moved production to what is now the Czech Republic. Although they were successful with some of their own designs Teichert Werke was mostly successful in copying Meissen wares for the mass market.

Teichert is most well known for its Zwiebelmuster, they produced massive amounts of it. Their wares are of high quality, comparable to their royal neighbors, but a little bit heavier in execution, so more suitable for heavy use.
