In 1830 - 1834 the factory was leased by F. Weisl. Finally, in 1834 Franz Miessl sold it to Johann Dietl, Johann Huttner and Johann Schreyerow. The factory was renamed to Huttner & Co. In 1835 they received license for porcelain production. Items produced were in empire style.

Another owner of the factory was a physician from Saxony, Geitner, who sold it in 1842 to Moses Portheim. Later it was run by his sons.
