Pirkenhammer Porcelain
Over two hundred years ago, a porcelain factory was built in Karlovy Vary also known as Karlsbad, and the brand Pirkenhammer originated. The factory is located in a picturesque area within 10 min walk from the center of the city.

By the 1820's Pirkenhammer was considered the best in Bohemia, recognised by a gold medal at the Vienna World fair in 1839. The awarding committee commented that it demonstrated "a good taste in shape, clear body, smooth glaze, and high quality of printing".

Since the use of gilding in ceramic manufacture was officially proven to be safe in 1835, Pirkenhammer acquired a worldwide reputation in the application of this technology. The artist André Carriére began to influence Pirkenhammer's style from 1868 when he became chief designer and the company invested in a studio for him in Paris in 1874.

In 1945 when the communist government nationalised all the Czecholslovakian Porcelain factories Pirkenhammer was naturally chosen to be the centre for research and development.

During the next fifty years Pirkenhammer cemented the high esteem in which it was held by winning several gold medals for manufacturing excellence. Indeed it was the natural choice when the preseident of the Czech Republic wanted to equip the presidential palace.
