Winterling ceramics are collectible items of tableware produced by the Winterling company in Germany between 1950 and 2000, many of them vintage pieces. According to the 1930 Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act’s definition, “vintage” refers to pieces manufactured within the last 100 years and can include items made as recently as the 1980s.

Background

The company is based in Schwarzenbach, Bavaria and is often referred to as Winterling Schwarzenbach, Wiuterliug Schwarzenbach or Winterling Bavaria.

The firm was founded as Porzellanfabrik Oscar Schaller & Co in 1882, changing its name to Porzellanfabrik Oscar Schaller & Co. Nachfolger in 1917.

Between 1950 and 2000, the company produced pottery under the Winterling name. It was during this period that many collectible pieces were made. At the turn of the millennium the company filed for bankruptcy and changed its name to Triptis Porzellan.

How much are Winterling ceramics worth?

Individual pieces such as creamers or plates start at $5. 117 piece dinner sets can reach close to $1,000.

Notable sales

A set of eight late-20th century Winterling parcel gilt and colourfully decorated dinner plates sold for $550 at a Simpson Galleries sale in December 2008.

A 117 piece dinner set sold for $850 at a Ferrell auction in November 2007.
