Haas & Czjzek 1792™ about its porcelain design


The project BohemiaPorcelainStory.com represents a unique historical model of original Czech porcelain design, artistically captured by its own description of creation and the decorative concept. Here you will find many global companies, their symbols and brands, and some existing companies, hotels, restaurants and cafés, many of which, by their significance, now exceed the essence of their original not merely commercial purpose. Haas & Czjzek 1792™, the family brand that produced the most porcelain in the entire Habsburg (monarchy and whose noble wrinkles undoubtedly express its irreplaceable influence on the beginning of the Czech porcelain era, is now revealing, for the first time in its long tradition, its work records through design books, swatches and a practically arranged portfolio of its valued customers and their specific orders, even in stages of the production process and the final basis of all production. All this is in the form of exceptionally high quality digital photographic reproduction.

It is a historical legacy of the famous cradle of utilitarian and custom porcelain, which thus comes to life and provides everyone with a real and unbiased insight into the history of the design, production and decoration of the oldest Czech porcelain factory.

Haas & Czjzek models and design are defined mainly by their practical adaptation and world-class quality, the aspect of detail in the development of each product and the preservation of the original considered idea of the element. All this in an unsurpassed visual structure and a clear record of creation, including many other rare moments that can be discovered in the authenticity and romance of the lines of the time.

All this in an unsurpassed artistic structure and a clear record of the creation, including many other rare moments that can be discovered in the authenticity and romance of the lines of the time.

It is clear from the beginning that this photo reproduction through named e-books is an extraordinary and highly sought-after content.
