Sitzendorfer Porzellanmanufaktur Wilhelm Liebmann was founded in 1850. Most of the factory was demolished in 1858 in an explosion. it was rebuilt by Liebmann with help from his business partner Wilhelm Oertel. In 1884 the factory was bought by Alfred and Carl Wilhelm Voigt who changed the range, starting with the introduction of lace figurines decorated in the Meissen style. In 1890 a subsidiary Unterweißbach was opened. In 1896 the company was transformed into a public limited company by Albert Schonau. Financial problems as a result of the First World War and the subsequent global financial crisis forced the factory to close the Unterweißbach site in 1928. Four years later, the financial situation improved thanks to the efforts of Reinhold Rebhan and Max Krauße. The new owners renamed the factory Sitzendorfer Porzellanmanufaktur A.G. During World War II, factory production focused on war-related items. In 1958, the East German government began to influence the factory management. In 1972 the company was nationalized. In 1990 the factory in Sitzendorf was privatized by Rolf Rebhan’s daughter Carla Hermann and her husband Uwe Hermann together with Hans-Jürgen Schmidt. In 2000, the factory proudly celebrated its 150th anniversary. Production was completely stopped in 2012. We show two sublime hand-formed porcelain winged putti made by the Dresden Sitzendorf porcelain factory during the management of the Voigt brothers. Both form a pair. They stand on a round raised base with a pure white glaze. Flowers and leaves are applied in relief on a light green layer of moss. Furthermore, the foot is gilded all around with two concentric lines and a kind of coat of arms in high relief with a full gilded crown. Leaning on a tree trunk, the putti stand vertically with a skin color all over the body and with yellow curly hair. The face is characterized by blue eyes and red lips. They only wear a light blue loincloth. On their backs they have a large pair of light gray wings. Both have a dark brown bow, one almost in both hands, the other in the left hand with the right arm and hand tucked behind the head. We also see that at the bottom of the back there is a kind of “bocage” in high relief with a green color in varying shades. Both are marked on the bottom in blue with the underglaze hand-painted early mark of two crossed lines. This mark was used in the Voigt period of 1884-1902. In addition, the number “2” has been pressed each time, perhaps referring to a pair.
