Description The Ginori porcelain factory was one of the most important porcelain factories to be established in Italy, in Doccia. Marchese Carlo Ginori, the founder of the works, opened the factory in 1735, and originally hired two Viennese painters to decorate the fine porcelain wares. Ginori is known to have experimented with several different porcelain recipes, the early works being made from a grayish, hard-paste porcelain derived from local clay, which was extremely prone to cracking. After 1770 the recipe for the porcelain paste was changed to a finer, whiter variety.
Ginori's was the only Italian porcelain factory to thrive during the 1800s; the factory continues production today under the name Richard-Ginori.
