Furstenberg Porcelain Factory - (Ceramics, Porcelain, Germany) This porcelain factory founded in 1747 at Furstenberg, Brunswick, Germany, under the auspices of Duke Karl I of Brunswick, but no porcelain was produced until the arrival of Johann Benckgraff (who had been at Vienna) in 1753. Hard-paste porcelain was made from this date, but not very successfully till c. 1770. However, during the period 1770-1800 much excellent porcelain, including figures, was manufactured. The letter 'F' is the usual mark.
