Dümler & Breiden
The factory started production in 1883 and was located in Höhr-Grenzhausen, a city known for its many ceramic factories. The founders were Peter DÜmler (7/11/1860 - 19/04/1907) and his brother-in-law Albert Breiden (12/06/1860 - 27/05/1926).
Peter was a designer and trained by Reinhold Hanke and Simon Peter Gerz. Albert, trained by his uncle S.P. Gerz, was responsible for the company. Peter died in 1907 and Albert took over the company with the help of Bertha, Peter's widow. Paul Dümler, Peter's son, followed in his father's footsteps and designed the Terra Sigillata series (this work was based on the style of the ancient Roman pottery).
In the beginning, a lot of traditional pottery was produced such as beer jugs, punch bowls, and cups. After the war, during the 'ceramic tree' of the 50s and 60s, the company experienced a period of strong growth. From 1930 to the end of 1980, D&B was one of the leading ceramic factories.
The quality of most vases is very high. They never let a vase leave the factory where something was wrong. Dümler & Breiden was very successful but lagged behind the market leaders of that time, Ruscha and Scheurich. The company closed its doors in 1995.
