Haas & Czjzek

The roots of Haas & Czjzek porcelain can be found in 1792, when the first Czech porcelain manufactory was founded. Johann Georg Paulus was responsible for its foundation. In 1812, the factory was granted the privilege to produce whiteware and after about 55 years (1867), Georg Haas and Johann Czjzek took over the company.

Baron George Haas

Baron George Haas

Georg Haas (1841-1914) was born the son of the landowner and industrialist August Eusebius Haas (1804-1871). He studied chemistry at the Vienna Polytechnic and after graduating took over his father's porcelain factory in Horní Slavkov and together with his cousin Johann Baptist Czjzek von Smidaich (1841-1925) owned the famous firm Haas & Czjzek, founded in 1792. Their company became one of the largest porcelain factories in the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the first porcelain factory in the Czech lands.

You can buy the book on the Haas-Czjzek website



Over the pages of this featured book, the reader can marvel at the depicted fragility of the porcelain shard and the delicate elegance of the decoration from one of the most famous brands, Haas & Czjzek. This is a brand that is inextricably linked to the oldest successful porcelain production in the Czech lands and which maintained active production from the late eighteenth century until the twenty-first. In order to ensure that the brand does not disappear even in this century and can represent the importance of the talent and skill of Czech heads and hands, the protagonists of the Bohemia Porcelain Story project are taking care of this.

The purpose of this book is not to provide the reader with comprehensive information on the problems of porcelain production and decoration. Nor is it a dramatic-historical treatise on the development of porcelain production in the world and the Czech lands, which would have to be read systematically from the first page to the last. Instead, it is enough to sit back, leaf through the book and let the subtle charm of the designs work on you and feel the drama and glory of ages long past.

The book will take you deep into the past, to a time when porcelain in the Czech lands was just beginning.

The book will be available for purchase on our e-shop very soon. All porcelain lovers have something to look forward to in the new year 2024.



Haas & Czjzek brand

It can be recognized immediately from the beginning thanks to the big "S". She began writing her story in 1792, at a time when the Bohemian Kingdom was the most industrially developed part of the Austrian Empire. The Czech porcelain story, inseparably linked to Horní Slavkov, is hardly rivalled by its longevity in the history of industrial development in the Czech lands. It is a very important first in the field. Production under the Haas & Czjzek brand can be safely described as the cradle of Czech porcelain. It is necessary to pay tribute to all those who, from the very beginning of the porcelain factory's existence until today, have jointly made this brand famous in all corners of the cultural world. And it is important that the brand's stamp should not be overtaken by the dust of oblivion. For all those involved in the Bohemia Porcelain Story project, it is therefore a great honour to play a part in preserving the fame of the Haas & Czjzek brand. Since this brand symbolizes the cradle of porcelain production in Bohemia, it is very important to preserve, spread and develop this legacy.

Porcelain Cross of St. Michael

Fine porcelain masterpiece

The porcelain palm sized cross by Haas & Czjzek from 1792 (on products marked S and S 1792) is defined by its noble origin, minimalist concept and the material from which it is made.

Due to the extraordinarily long tradition of this famous and popular porcelain brand, we have returned to the original S marking to better express our respect and admiration for those who founded, produced and worked in the years before us. And also as a de facto proof of respect for the nation's traditions and enduring values.

For your permanently happy days.

Whatever good and beautiful you have done, for the benefit of others, remains forever.
