Philip Rosenthal, Jr. recognized that through the centuries the things people value the most and that hold their value always express “The spirit of their time.”
Rosenthal neither wants to imitate what other people have done nor follow a trend that is already on the way. The goal is to create a truly original line that would reflect the many aesthetic currents of the time.
Rosenthal has turned this concept into a winning combination of remarkable craftmanship and design leadership, resulting in products with timeless value.
The company was founded by Philip Rosenthal Sr. in 1879 in Selb, Germany. Over the decades, it emerged to one of the world’s finest porcelain and crystal manufacturers in the world. The founders motto since 1900 was that “only through better form and decor can a manufacturer win the lead over its competition.”
The original focus on classic traditional designs (marketed under “Classic Rose”) turned into a whole new movement in 1961. This was when Philip Rosenthal, Jr. launched the Rosenthal Studio-Line: a tabletop line that employed the talents of more than 100 famous artists and designers to give day-to-day product that certain sparkle of lifestyle and an appreciation for master quality.
