Description


Porcelain figurines and artefacts or bric-a-brac present one of the most challenging of the many creative arts. It is difficult if not impossible to challenge the superiority of porcelain collectables designed and produced in the Third Reich (1933 - 1945). The material used is a hard, fine-grained, sonorous, nonporous, and usually translucent and white ceramic ware that consists essentially of kaolin, quartz, and a feldspathic rock and is fired at a high temperature. It falls under three grades: hard-paste porcelain, true porcelain. 2: soft-paste porcelain.The celebrated German porcelain manufacturers were principally to be discovered in Berlin, Meissen and Dresden. The quality of these companies' products conquered the world of elegance and unsurpassed quality of its products since the heyday of the Baroque era, when the German princes founded the first examples of porcelain or ceramic production.The highest quality and beauty of true works of art were produced in Allach. Such was the outstanding quality of the company's products that they came to the attention of the highest and most influential of those involved in the cultural renaissance of National Socialist Germany. The parties interested included the SS (Schutzstaffel). The company was included in the Main Department of Administration and Economics in 1939.The Allach official founding members were: Franz Nagy as a company director, Theodor K rner as a sculptor, Karl Diebitsch as a painter, and Bruno Galke as a trading agent.
