Condition

There is a tiny un-glazed production related irregularity on the base. This needs very close inspection to spot and does not detract from the otherwise pristine condition.

History

The 20-year-old porcelain painter Carolus Magnus Hutschenreuther laid the foundation for the first private porcelain factory in north-east Bavaria in 1814

The company was originally set up as decorating studio, and did not begin production of its own patterns until 1822. Magnus's son, Lorenze Hutschenreuther, split off his own porcelain factory in 1857 in another German city, Selb.

Selb would eventually become a center for porcelain manufacturing in Germany much like Limoges in France and Staffordshire in England
