The Lichte porcelain (GmbH) (German: Lichte Porzellan (GmbH)) was founded 1822 in Lichte, Thuringian Highlands.

History[edit]

On the northern hillside of the Thuringian Highland, close to the Rennsteig, where the early settlements of the Thuringian porcelain manufacturing took its rise, Johann Heinrich Leder established in 1822 a new porcelain manufacturer, today’s Lichte porcelain (GmbH).

Early work[edit]

Although the newly established porcelain manufacturer was from the very beginning in close competition to the already 1764 founded local Wallendorf porcelain manufacture, Lichte porcelain quickly opened up a share of the porcelain market of its own. This became possible by the highest quality standards and aim high product management. This company internal so-called philosophy survived until today.
