Heinrich Porcelain was founded in 1896 in Selb, Bavaria, Germany by Franz Heinrich (porcelain director) to decorate German White wares. By 1900, the firm began to produce its own porcelain & the name became Heinrich & Co. and continued until 1929, when it was purchased by Graf & Krippner in Selb. The name Heinrich Porzellan GMBH was adopted in 1970, and in 1976, became a subsidiary of Villeroy & Boch in Mettlach, Saarland, Germany.
