Today, if you have the opportunity to visit the Royal Bayreuth factory, you will witness for yourself the history, craftsmanship, and genius that makes this porcelain so interesting.
For an extensive history of Royal Bayreuth, consult Mary Mc Caslin's Royal Bayreuth, Book 1.
Several devastating fires experienced by the company during that time destroyed the factory, offices, molds and records which effectively stopped most of the manufacturing of their unique novelty wares (and exclusive finishes) exported around the world.
Much of the information regarding their process was forever lost or too expensive to recreate at that point.
Just as fascinating are the wide number of collector items that the factory has produced.
Additional figural shapes include shells, fruits, flowers and leaves.
