Royal Dux is a type of porcelain manufactured by a company in the town of Duchov in the Czech Republic. It is known for its Art Nouveau-style figurines, highly decorative vases, candlesticks, bowls and other items.
The company was established in 1853, and in 1860 became ‘E.Eichler Thonwaren-Fabrik’ when it was purchased by the successful model-drawer Eduard Eichler. Its main products were faience and majolica, for which it was awarded a Silver Medal at the 1878 Paris Exhibition.
At the turn of the century the company expanded to include a head office in Berlin, and began producing a large range of porcelain figurines.During this period the manufacturer found great success, due largely to its model-designer Alois Hampel who created a series of Art Nouveau figurines. It started to export its porcelain and faience figurines across Europe and the United States, winning awards such as the Grand Prix prize at the world exhibition in St Louis in 1904 and the silver medal at the exhibition in Milano in 1906.
