Small Vintage mid century 60s Swiss porcelain Handpainted cream pitcher from SUISSE LANGENTHAL.

Some notables of the Bernese town of Langenthal decided to found a porcelain manufactory in July 1906. After a century without any porcelain manufacture in Switzerland, there were no raw materials and, more particularly, no specialized local workforce available. They had to start completely from scratch. After a chaotic start, production became more organized and the manufactory began displaying its goods in specialized exhibitions and fairs with encouraging success. The outbreak of the First World War curbed this momentum.  After the Second World War, the manufactory enjoyed a heyday. In 1964, the firm recorded the highest number of employees in its history, with 950 workers. From the 1980s onwards, despite its modernisation efforts, the manufactory struggled to withstand the fierce competition within the sector and developments in tableware. The company was bought out successively by Keramik Holding Laufen AG and then by the Czech group, G. Benedikt. Today, although its name still survives, all Langenthal porcelain is manufactured in Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad) in the Czech Republic.
