Porzellanmanufaktur Fürstenberg was established on 11 January 1747 in Fürstenberg an der Weser by Johann Georg von Langen on behalf of Duke Carl I. of Brunswick-Wolfenbuettel. The production started after 6 years thanks to a technology brought by the artist who left Hochst. In 1753, the Duke ordered that in the future all porcelain items should be marked with a blue “F”.

Figures produced in Furstenberg imitated those produced in Meissen. Some of Rococo style patterns are still produced in the original Furstenberg facility.

In the 18th century Fürstenberg was one of two manufacturers allowed to have a sales outlet in Berlin. The second one was KPM. The 1770 - 90 period was the golden era of this manufacture. About 1775 there appeared neo-classical influences. In 1807 - 1813 Brunswick was occupied by Napoleon forces. In this period Furstenberg was the Royal Porcelain Manufactory.

The Fürstenberg Porcelain factory is the second oldest German china producer. Older is only famous Meissen Porcelain Factory. In 1859, the manufactory was leased to private individuals and was finally converted into a public stock company in 1888. In 1966 it became a limited liability company (GmbH). The factory is still producing porcelain today.
