Weißenstadt

[1] : Porzellanfabrik Weißenstadt Dürrbeck & Ruckdäschel (1920 until 1962)

This business was founded in 1920 and mainly produced commodities and small gift items which were very successful so that the company slowly grew until it had around 120 workers registered in 1930; both the good reputation and full order books carried the business on until around 1955. From then on, based on various disagreements followed by wrong design decisions, business slowly declined until the factory was forced to close in 1962.
