Porcelain factory established at Weesp in 1764, closed in 1771. Transferred to Oude Loosdrecht in 1772. Removed to Oude Amstel in 1784 and closed again near end of 18th century. George Dommer & Co. established a factory there at this time, but it ceased operation in 1810. A. La Fond & Co. started work in Amsterdam at that time. About 1775 a porcelain manufactory opened at The Hague and closed 10 years later. At Arnheim there was a fayence factory from 1780 to about 1785.
