Ernst Bohne from Cumbach founded a porcelain painting business in 1848. The Ernst Bohne Söhne Rudolstadt porcelain factory emerged from this porcelain decorating studio. In 1850 a kiln was built but the porcelain factory is thought to be founded in 1854. Ernst Bohne died in 1856. The company was continued by his three sons Gustav, Karl and David. At the beginning of the 20th century, the company was run by David's children, Bernhard Bohne and Martha Suhr. In the 1870s and 1880s, the Ernst Bohne Söhne's porcelain was recognized with several awards. The factory has been known for its ivory imitations, Capo Di Monte imitations, biscuit figurines, and Dresden-style porcelain items. Ernst Bohne Söhne had trade representatives in Berlin, Hamburg, Vienna, Paris, and London. The anchor mark was used from 1878 onwards (mostly with letters E.B.S.). Capodimonte mark ( N with a crown above) was used on imitations and export porcelain from 1901 to 1920. In 1919 the factory was taken over by the Gebrüder Heubach AG porcelain factory in Lichte. The Gebrüder Heubach in Lichte went bankrupt in 1937. The Ernst Bohne Söhne Rudolstadt branch was taken over by Albert Stahl and renamed Albert Stahl & Co.
