Carl Magnus Hutschenreuther (1794-1845) was born in Thuringia and
started his working life as a porcelain painter. In 1814 Hutschenreuther
discovered kaolin, used for the production of porcelain, in north east
Bavaria and he decided to set up his eponymous state of the art
A second factory was established by Carl Magnus' son Lorenz Hutschenreuther in the nearby town of Selb in 1857 and in 1969 both companies merged to form Hutschenreuther AG, Selb. The lion motif, used by Lorenz Hutschenreuther in Selb and designed by Paul Klee in 1919, was unified with the founding date of the original factory to create the company trademark, signifying excellence in quality, craftmanship and creativity.
