Our porcelain houses are part of brand line that includes over 80 miniature houses found in Prague. From them you can build the Old Town Square, the Golden Lane or even a part of the Lesser Town. 

How it comes about:
The basic model is made in scale according to the actual model. Then it’s converted in an elaborate way into a form, from which we obtain individual parts by casting porcelain mass. After assembling, retouching, drying and firing, careful and detailed revising begins again. This process is followed by hand painting with several layers of glaze and another firing at 1200 ° C. Last task is the final decor and firing in the kiln. It is a unique and sophisticated technique of creating models with the theme of historic houses. You can see the result in front of you…

History of The House at the Stone Table:
The original building and some of its walls date from the 12th c. However, the first records that mention it appeared only in 1364. It underwent a large Gothic reconstruction in the 14th c. during which the house obtained its present size. Another reconstruction, this time late Gothic, took place here between 1360-1370. Its contemporary owner was Jiří of Kunštát and Poděbrady, who also opened an exchange office here. There were no other significant changes till 1724 when it was rebuilt in the Baroque style. Two more floors and its present facade were added. Berta Fantová-Wertheim opened a salon for the Society of German writers and artists here in 1907. Needless to say, Franz Kafka and Max Brod used to be frequent guests here. Albert Einstein lectured here for the first time on his theory of relativity in 1911.
