In November 2022, a group of English and German dealers and curators went to Berlin to study all Böttger and Plaue objects there. A visit to Dresden followed in early 2023, including the detailed study and handling of the very first objects made by Böttger. The Plaue objects in Frankfurt raised new questions. This lecture will present the three groups of red stoneware and the insights of the participants. The scientific test results will be compared. However, the input of all FPS members would be most welcome to find new ideas how to achieve a more precise attributions than Ernst Zimmermann in 1908.
