About Reutter Porzellan

At the end of World War II, Marta Reutter, an experienced teacher, was uncertain of the job opportunities in the field of education during that turbulent time. A natural artistic talent prompted her to begin studies in the field of pottery and ceramics. After three years of study, her graduation assignment was a collection of miniature ceramics for her instructor’s daughter’s dollhouse. Thus began a lifetime career that centered on small and miniature ceramic and porcelain products for children.

In the beginning the Reutter products were hand made in ceramic, this required a great deal of work for even a limited production. By 1952 the economic recovery of Germany was well on its way and the demand for miniature, decorative and children’s items was rapidly increasing. The production of the small Reutter factory was overwhelmed by the demand.

Marta’s husband Willy Reutter, a trained engineer, stepped in at this time to bring about the necessary production changes. New machinery, moulds and kilns were developed to enable the switch from the handmade ceramic to the poured porcelain product necessary to increased production. As transportation at this time was a major expense, the decision was made to continue with the smaller pieces to save transport of the raw material. Because the Reutter factory was isolated from the German Ceramic Industry, it became necessary to develop their own unique shapes and designs.

Through the years the MW Reutter Porcelain Company has gained an international reputation for fine quality children’s tea sets, miniatures and select giftware.
