Vintage Porcelain Hutschenreuther Selb Kunstabteilung Germany Mother Penguin and Baby Figurine. Measure 2.50x2x5". Weight is 6 oz. Hutschenreuther was established in 1814 in the Bavarian town of Hohenburg by Carolus Magnus Hutschenreuther. He employed artists, craftsmen and sculptors from across Europe to ensure a high quality of workmanship and product was achieved. In 1857 his son Lorenz Hutschenreuther opened his own independent factory in the town of Selb where his growth and reputation were to far exceed that of his father. 'Hutschenreuther of Selb' (or Hutschenreuther A.G.) became the first German porcelain company to be able to compete with the likes of Haviland and Wedgwood. Rapid growth was maintained by purchasing the assets of other porcelain factories throughout Germany. In 1969 'Hutschenreuther of Selb' purchased all the assets previously owned by the original company established by Carolus Magnus Hutschenreuther. Hutschenreuther became a single company.
