    Franz B. Aulich (Silesian, c.1852-1910) trained in Dresden and Berlin before joining the Berlin (K.P.M.) manufactory as a flower painter in 1888. Aulich immigrated to the United States in 1893. He established a painting and porcelain art school in the Auditorium Building, Chicago and went on to exhibit at both the 1900 Paris Universelle and the 1904 St. Louis World Fair.
