The first privately owned porcelain factory in Bavaria, Hutschenreuther was founded in 1814 by Carolus Magnus Hutschenreuther. To enhance the quality of his product, Carolus solicited artists, craftsmen, and sculptors from across the European continent. Primarily focusing on quality and design, Hutschenreuther grew into a competitive firm that produced dinnerware services ideal for fine dining. In 1857, Carolus’ son, Lorenz Hutschenreuther, opened his own porcelain factory in the town of Selb. Hutschenreuther of Selb became the first German firm able to compete with such companies as Haviland and Wedgwood. In 1917, Hutschenreuther of Selb began producing figurines by purchasing the art division of Paul Muller. By 1926, the art division of the company had won wide acclaim, and its porcelain figurines were highly sought after. Hutschenreuther of Selb continued to grow by buying the assets of competing factories throughout Germany. Hutschenreuther produced many of its most famous patterns throughout the first half of the twenty-first century, including Racine, Richelieu, Blue Onion, and Maple Leaf. By 1969, the company expanded to include several more factories. During that same year, the assets of Carolus Magnus Hutschenreuther’s 1814 company were purchased by Hutschenreuther of Selb. After more than a century of competition, the two companies became one. The newly united company continued producing porcelain figurines and fine bone china. Today, the company uses the lion and circle as their trademark and continues to produce sculptures, ornaments, and dinnerware.
