A BIT OF HISTORY
Krautheim was founded by Christoph Krautheim (1854-1933) who was joined in 1889 by his brother-in-law Richard Adelberg. Originally decorators, buying blank porcelain which they painted, but from 1912 they began to make their own porcelain. After Christoph Krautheim's death in 1933 the firm was taken over by his son Richard. The last owner was Georg Krautheim and the factory closed in 1977.
Near mint condition - with the exception of faint movement marks to the base, commensurable with age of the piece - please see photos as part of the condition report. The base of the vase bears the stamped Krautheim insignia dated from 1922-1945. After 1945, the word Franconia was added to the mark.
