Phillip Rosenthal began business in 1884 by purchasing white ware from Hutschenreuther (which Rosenthal now owns), and selling his wife's hand painted designs door to door. In 1891 he established a factory in Bohemia and began production of his own blanks for decoration. From 1897 to 1936 Rosenthal acquired several factories, and by WWII employed over 5,000 people. When the war ended, Rosenthal's son, Phillip, returned to Germany where he modernized the outdated factories and reestablished lost markets. Phillip quickly rebuilt the business by reaching new markets interested in the modern shapes and artistry of the company's table and decorative ware. After more than 125 years, Rosenthal continues to work with leaders in fashion and design to create their unique designs.
