Description

Karl Tutter was one of the most famous porcelain modellers of the 20th century. His porcelain works gained him fame nationally and intenationally. To some extent the Hutschenreuther art figurines owe their good reputation to Karl Tutter. He created a large number of figurines for the brand Hutschenreuther, which had been acquired by Rosenthal in 2000.

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 porcelain factory.

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.
