The manufactory was located in Berlin, Tiergarten since 1871. It took up the production of painted porcelain lilies under the direction of Professor Alexander Kips and made a huge profit. After the destruction of the manufactory during the Second World War the Land of Berlin took over the company in 1988. Since 2006, the company has been owned by the private banker Jorg Woltmann.
