Antique Samson Hochst Porcelain Figurine
A Hochst figure of a girl with chickens
Dimensions: 6.5" H x 4" W x 3.5" D
Blue underglaze maker's mark on the underside
Condition: Good
The factory at H?chst was founded in 1746 and was supported by the Elector of Mainz. They at first only produced faience but later (around 1753) mainly porcelain was produced. The mark used was the wheel mark and later the wheel mark with the electoral crown above it. Melchior was the most famous of the designers of figurines. After a fairly short existence, as was the case with most of the makers of porcelain in the 18th century, it was closed in 1796. A modern manufactory was opened in 1947 and closed in 1964. Another one followed in 1965 and is still around. The original molds were sold to many factories over the years after Hoechst closed its doors
