Who knows the secret recipe?
After several failed attempts at manufacturing porcelain, Joseph Jakob Ringler (1730–1804) became the factory's second manager in 1759. He had previously acquired the knowledge necessary for mixing and firing porcelain in Vienna, Höchst and Nymphenburg. Ringler built up the company and operated it for more than forty years and faced many challenges in this time. Firewood was always in short supply as well as the suitable clay for making porcelain.
