[1] Porzellanfabrik Oscar Schaller & Co. (1882 until 1917)

The company was founded in the year 1882 by the businessman Oscar Schaller; after exactly ten years he changed his mark into the stylized "S&C", standing for the Schaller & Co. company name.

[2] Porzellanfabrik Oscar Schaller & Co. Nachfolger (1917 until 1950)

In 1917 the company was taken over by the Gebrüder Winterling OHG in Röslau (Bavaria) and renamed to Oscar Schaller & Co. Nachfolger. The upward trend was so promising that they bought and converted the textile factory Kirchenlamitz (Upper Franconia, Bavaria) in 1920 and took over the company Porzellanfabrik Eduard Haberländer in Windischeschenbach (Upper Palatinate, Bavaria) in 1929. All these subsidiaries were kept under the name of Oscar Schaller & Co. Nachfolger. In 1938 the group also took over the Triptiser Porzellanfabrik AG (Triptis, Thuringia) that remained a standalone factory for the next years until its expropriation and partial nationalization in 1947 which was completed after the founding of East Germany in 1949.

An interesting fact is that the company also manufactured some souvenir pieces for the town of Hallerstein, which at that time had a constant flow of tourists visiting their church in Zell-Hallerstein which was based on a chapel built in 1420. Pieces marked with Hallerstein were much sought after by collectors of Schaller or Winterling items until the upcoming internet around 1995 showed that these goods were a dime a dozen.

[3] Porzellanfabrik Gebrüder Winterling AG (1950 until 2000)

In 1950 the company was changed to corporation status and gave out shares; the family members being the main shareholders. All daughter companies were re-named to Gebrüder Winterling AG and the marks used up until then were changed.

[4] Triptis Porzellan GmbH & Co. KG (2000 until 2004)

After the bankruptcy of the Gebrüder Winterling AG in November 2000, the facility and mark were taken over by the Triptis Porzellan GmbH & Co. KG located in Triptis (Thuringia). But the Triptis management had bitten off more than they could chew. Confronted with large scaled financial problems, Triptis themselves went insolvent on October 7th 2004 and had to file for bankruptcy a month later. In June 2005 the Triptis company was refounded as Neue Porzellanfabrik Triptis GmbH and continued business, please view the Triptis entry for further info.


One series created by Winterling under the Schaller brand was named "Stolzenfels". This is found marked either with the crowned "SC" above "Stolzenfels" and "Bavaria", or as crowned "SC" above "Bavaria", "Germany", and "US Zone", without mentioning the series name.
