A Jewish owned business, Lazarus & Rosenfeld [a/k/a Lazarus, Rosenfeld & Lehmann] was a European ceramics group that founded the Victoria Porcelain Factory at Altrouhlau, Bohemia. The company consisted of Isaac Lazarus and Bertie Rosenfeld, and later Isaac, Sidney, Alfred and Julius Rosenfeld according to Trow's Corporation Directory of 1914.
