Gallitzendörfer for Manufaktur Chiemsee (Heinrich & Co.) Seethal am Chiemsee, Germany 1951.
Post-war unique porcelain vase hand-painted by the hitherto unidentified artist Gallitzendörfer in 1951 at the Manufaktur Chiemsee (artistic subdivision of Heinrich & Co. Selb) in Seethal am Chiemsee.
In 1947 Heinrich & Co. (founded in Selb Bavaria in 1896) established a separate artistic subdivision, the Manufaktur Chiemsee in Seethal am Chiemsee which remained operational until 1973. Here, existing Heinrich porcelain models were decorated in a variety of techniques by -today mostly unidentified- artists. Most of their experiments remained unique. The present vase emerged from this workshop where it was paint by an hitherto unidentfied artist Gallitzendörfer in 1951.
