HISTORY/MARKS: Though Charles Ahrenfeldt (1807-94) was born in Lubeck, Germany, he began importing porcelain into New York City in 1831 to his business located on Park Row. He was most likely the first importer of Bohemian porcelain into the US. During the 1840's he moved to Paris where he had a decorating studio. Between 1859 and the late 1860's he opened an exporting firm in Limoges and developed a wide export market, especially to North America.Around 1884 he also started decorating porcelain in Limoges. In 1896 he built a porcelain factory in the Montjovis district of Limoges. The son and his business partner, M.
Doering, both relocated to Europe in late 1909. The term depose' indicates this was for export trade especially in late 1890's. Please view all pictures carefully as they are part of the description.
