Yes! You might also ask "... is Rosenthal Porcelain better than Villeroy & Boch ..." or "Meissen better than KPM"? Of course, the sales representatives of the big brands can show many distinguishing features than we would like, or as you would like to read here. Conclusion is: Quality of porcelain is a matter of the material components, the type of production and especially the sorting! Everywhere where sorting is done, the good goods must co-finance the committee! For material components and production types there are DIN standards, regulations and laws; We respect these as well as German brand porcelains. In a two-year study, the European Commission determined in 2013 that "generic porcelain", like Holst Porzellan/Germany, differs only in the price to the big premium manufacturers.

Is there a long time purchase guarantee for Holst Porcelain?

The term "post-purchase guarantee" comes from a bygone era in which the valuable porcelain was usually more expensive than the cabinet in which it was kept. After a large number of bankruptcies, especially of the major German traditional brands, the consumer had to learn that the promise of a "guarantee" ultimately does not represent an insurance of the former promise to buy.

Nevertheless, the commercial end user in particular expects a follow-on commitment, since its use cycles are characterized by different requirements than those of the private end user. Holst Porcelain grants at least 10 years as a promise of Repurchase. This after-sale guarantee extends to all series from Holst Porcelain from the appearance in the collection. If individual items have been removed from the warehouse collection, they can be re-produced at any time as a special production. The minimum quantity is 5,000 pieces. If the quantity of a repeat order of a single customer for the start a production is not sufficient, the production waits for further repeat orders from other customers for this item. Insofar as a customer does not want to wait with a repeat order, the latter may arrange for an immediate post-production at Holst Porcelain in return for the acceptance of the batch costs. More detailed information on the additional purchase guarantee can be found here.
