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). It seems far more realistic that Bennewitz was unable to navigate his factory through the aftermath of the US stock market crash.
