A BIT OF HISTORY
The company was founded in 1907 by seven Winterling brothers in Röslau, Bavaria and was originally named Gebrüder Winterling O.H.G.
In the space of 10 years, the company would go on to take over Oscar Schaller porcelain factory located in Schwarzenbach where they continued to expand their production of high-quality porcelain items.
In 1950, the company was turned into a joint-stock company as well as starting another factory in Bruchmühlbach, in 1954. Despite its history of success, sadly, Winterling would eventually become bankrupt in 2000.
