PM&M / Germany / Saxony-Anhalt :

Neuhaldensleben (Haldensleben)

Note that the town name may cause confusion depending on the source: the two independent villages of 'Althaldensleben' (Old Haldensleben) and 'Neuhaldensleben' (New Haldensleben) existed until 1938 before they merged into the town of 'Haldensleben'. In the case of the 'Saxonia Porzellanfabrik' the business was originally located in the Neuhaldensleben part of later Haldensleben.

[1] : Saxonia Porzellanfabrik Georg Bennewitz (1927 until 1932)

The factory founded in 1927 by Georg Bennewitz had the shortest production span of all companies originating in Neuhaldesleben. It produced normal household porcelain for merely five years before it was closed down again. Rumour has it that the company ran into problems after simply copying the 'China Blau' series registered by the company of ⇒Carl Hans Tuppack from Tiefenfurt in Silesia (which also closed shortly afterwards, but for a completely different reason).

Comment(s)

Depending on sources like Danckert the anchor mark with the initials 'SPF' is stated to have belonged to a successor of the Hugo Lonitz company named ⇒Sächsische Porzellan- und Kunstkeramische Fabrik and was used around 1924 (quoting his source Pelka). However next to the already mentioned doubts (see there) some people say it would not fit as the mark would have rather been 'SPK' or 'SPKF'. At the same time they state that the anchor mark belonged to the Saxonia Porzellan-Fabrik which would match 'SPF' and the location of Neuhaldensleben, however that company in turn was founded 1927 and had nothing to do with Uffrecht, Carstens or Lonitz.
