Ernst Bohne (& Söhne)
Debrastraße 13, Rudolstadt. Thuringia.
Kunst- und Phantasie - Artikel / Art & fantasy items

Ernst Bohne first started porcelain decoration in 1848, only installing a kiln for the manufacture of porcelain in 1850. When Ernst died in 1856, his sons, Gustav, Karl and David took over the company as Ernst Bohne & Söhne. By 1883 David was left as sole proprietor, so in turn David's children continued the dynasty, operating as Ernst Bohne & Söhne Inhaber Bernhard Bohne und Martha Suhr by 1907. The company was purchased by Gebrüder Heubach of Lichte in 1919 and ran as a branch of Heubach until 1930, when the factory capacity was no longer required. After being repurchased in 1937, Ernst Bohne & 
Söhne  was reopened, at the original address, as Albert Stahl & Co. vormals Ernst Bohne &  Söhne . Albert Stahl was the one time accountant for Ernst Bohne & Söhne. Following World War II the factory was nationalised by the East German government and subsequently merged with the Sitzendorfer Porzellanmanufaktur in 1974, but then in 1990 was reprivatised and reassumed the name Albert Stahl & Co. At this point they commenced making "reproductions" of the Ernst Bohne & Söhne range, as well as other figural steins.
