Johann Maresch, born in 1821, became a partner with Adolf Baehr around 1841. Baehr and Maresch Siderolith Fabrik were located on the corner of Teplitzerstraße & Johannesstraße, Aussig an der Elbe. Reinhold Hanke worked here between 1853 and 1858 as an apprentice modeller. Originally they marked their items with B&M, but around 1863 they switched to the famous JM markings. They used an "iron stone" clay mixture: a type of porcelain that is more durable, stronger and heavier than fine porcelain. Their production was extensive. Their items were shipped far and wide. In 1890 his son Ferdinand took over the family business and kept the factory name the same for nine years, but eventually changed it to Ferdinand Maresch. Siderolith, Majolika and Terracotta Fabrik. However, he did not change the distinctive JM markings. In the early 1900s, the company flourished under his leadership and exported to the rest of Europe and America. The factory was run by Ferdinand until his death on August 2, 1940. The factory continued to produce its ceramics products, but Europe would face a difficult time. The factory stopped production in 1944 and was finally closed in 1948. Reference: Earthlink
