Riessner, Stellmacher and Kessel (RStK), later known as Amphora, began producing luxury ceramic objects in Turn-Teplitz, Austria in 1892. With the help of well-established ceramicist Alfred Stellmacher, his son and sons-in-law established the Riessner, Stellmacher and Kessel factory, which would produce some of the most highly collected porcelain objects of the 20th century.
