An utterly stunning centrepiece, this Hutschenreuther porcelain group of three sighthounds playing is truly magnificent! designed by Hans Achtziger 1918-2003
Three sighthounds under glaze painting approx 24.5 x 51cm designed by Hans Achtziger.
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.
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
