The village of Cmielow was granted official town status as far back as 1510 by King Alexander the Jagiellon of Poland. The town was built on a type of soil that would dictate its future: rich loam and clayey soil. It was perfect for pottery. And it wasnâe(tm)t long before the townspeople earned a reputation across their homeland for the earthenware that they produced in their little workshops. Throughout the next century, the name Cmielow became synonymous with porcelain, china and fine pottery, and in 1810, the first pottery factory opened. As word spread, production increased, and by the late 1800âe(tm)s, more than 250 artisans were putting their personal touches on fine china, and the city became the largest center of china manufacturing in Poland.
