"The Friedrich Wilhelm Wessel porcelain factory represents a special Chapter in the production of porcelain in Frankenthal».
Very little is known about this manufacturer, most likely because the business only existed for a very short time. Friedrich Wilhelm Wessel founded the factory in 1949 and mainly made lace figures and porcelain household accessories.
After the war, with generous support, The "factory for the production of art, decorative, municipal and industrial porcelain" began production on September 1, 1949 with a modest staff of two employees and four workers. The new porcelain factory was so successful in a short time that the number of employees increased to 150 by 1953.
