Most imitations will be colourful and completely different in style from the original early 18th century meissen pieces.

In 1927 the company was taken over by the Lorenz Hutschenreuter AG from Selb.

The mark shown was registered in the RWZR (Weiden district) on the 7th of November 1882 and is actually ‘AB’ and not ‘AR’ but the style is intended to mirror the Augustus Rex mark.

Founded in 1755 – By: Gallimore – Thomas Turner Used From: 1772-1799 Thomas Turner, a porcelain-painter from Worcester married the daughter of Gallimore and introduced soft-paste porcelain to the production around 1772.

It was also added to pieces produced for the court of his son, August III, who succeeded him in 1733.

All court pieces were marked with the AR monogram, and occasionally the mark was added to gifts produced for royal visitors.

The mark is actually ‘HR’ and not ‘AR’ however the form displays a clear intention to fool the uneducated buyer. Founded in 1833 by Luigi Tinelli Used : c1850 Originally Tinelli imitated wares from the Wedgwood factory and marked them with his own mark.

In 1841 the factory was taken over by his brother Carlo Tinelli and Giulio Richard, then in 1870 Giulio Richard gained full control and in 1873 renamed it to “Società Ceramica Richard”.
