Some love stories are so beautiful that they are hard to believe. Like the one between Philipp Rosenthal and his wife Maria. It so happens that the privy councillor was so infatuated with her that he quickly named a porcelain set after her – without knowing that it would one day become a best-seller, selling millions of copies. Even today, over 80 different individual items are available. “Maria” has enjoyed enduring popularity over the decades, and numbers among the most extensive and bestselling crockery designs of all time. Rosenthal have developed elegant, refined and exciting tableware and gift collections. Inspiration for these is derived from different historical periods and cultures.
