Between 1943 and 1957 Hutschenreuther rented this factory to “Porzellanmanufaktur Berlin” which was destroyed during the war. The history of the Hutschenreuther Company begins with the name of Carl Magnus Hutschenreuther who opened the first Bavarian decorating after some years he started to produce porcelain himself porcelain factory in the upper Frankonian region of Germany, in 1814.
Nowadays, Hutschenreuther is where high standard meet international flair. Being a member of the Group Rosenthal Wedgwood Waterford it produces fine porcelain tableware for dinner, coffee and tea, gift articles and hotel porcelain. As a yardstick and premium brand name for the international art de la table, Hutschenreuther offers both stylish and fine porcelain with exclusive character, functional image and innovative product range. Gorgeous cup and saucer are entirely hand painted with pink roses and green foliage on a softly blended pastel ground. The rims have a wide band of rich, old Roman gold and the art is exceptionally well done. The porcelain is very fine and translucent.
In addition to decorating white ware, Hutschenreuther wanted to produce his own patterns, and after an eight year struggle with the Bavarian Government (which was not interested in creating competition for the state-owned factory), Hutschenreuther received the necessary permission to begin production in 1822. Upon his death in 1845, his son Lorenz founded his own Hutschenreuther Porcelain Company in Selb. Son Christian and widow Johanna also worked to carry on the company tradition.
In the early part of the 20th century, Hutschenreuther grew quickly by absorbing factories at Altrohlau (1909), Arzburg (1918) and Tirschenreuth (1927). The branches of the company were united in 1969. Hutschenreuther was a trend-setter and enabled Germany to gain an excellent reputation in the European china industry. The Hutschenreuther “Mark of the Lion” is a symbol of excellence that continues to this day. Please purchase on online website
