The pottery from the Richard Schiller factory bears a striking resemblance to that
of P.A. Wranitzky but it has certain distinguishing features. Perhaps the most
notable difference is the impressed mark which appears on some of the pottery,
that incorporates the letters RS. However, Schiller used to stick paper labels
on pots rather than mark their base, and while some of these remain intact,
many have fallen off in time, leaving the pots with no mark.
Another distinguishing feature is that the Schiller pots were often created from moulds with a raised pattern as seen on the example below. This was not the case with PAW pots which were all thown by hand.
The mould shown on the left can found in the wall of the current Hotel that occupies the old Schiller Pottery Building
It is the exact mould that was used to create the pot shown in the picture on the right
The Schiller factory still exists in Fischhausel (Hosterádky) but the building is now used as a hotel. Move your mouse over the picture below to see how it has changed.
