Carl-Johann Gottlob Thieme (born 12 September 1823 inNiederjahna, died 18 March 1888 in Dresden) was aHausmaler(a free-lance porcelain decorator). Thieme had been running his own porcelain studio and antique shop in the center of Dresden since 1864. He decided to manufacture his own porcelain and found a suitable plot of land at the gates of the city of Dresden in the industrial village of Potschappel. On September 17, 1872, Thieme'sGründerzeitfactory (now a listed cultural heritage monument) started operations. From the beginning, white porcelain was not only sold to the Dresden free-lance decorators, but also across Europe. Likewise, not only self-made, but also purchased white porcelain were painted and sold there.
The flower modeller Carl August Kuntzsch (1855–1920), a son-in-law of Thieme, played a key role in the company's success. With the "lush flower covering", he created a stylistic feature of Dresden porcelain. After Thieme's death, he took over the company and the economic success in 1912 enabled extensions to the production buildings, which have remained unaltered to this day.The world wars and the global economic crises reduced exports and the number of employees fell from 300 in 1914 to less than 70 in 1932.
