Founded in Rudolstadt in 1762, "Aelteste Volkstedter" is the oldest of the porcelain factories still producing in Thuringia. The foundation goes back to Georg Heinrich Macheleid, who in 1760 revealed the composition of the appropriate porcelain mass, "Arkanum".
The ornate figures from the Aelteste Volkstedter porcelain factory enjoy a high reputation among lovers and today they obtain the highest prices in the antique trade. The freshness, grace and temperament of the famous top figures are unmatched anywhere in the world. Each small manufacturing step is made exclusively by hand: an elaborate working method, which nevertheless guarantees harmony and perfection in shape and color.
