According to the website of the V&A museum: "Herman Robert Bichweiler, a designer and architect, established 'Die Kunstgewerbliche Werkstätt' in partnership with Dr. E. Berlieu in 1878 in Hamburg. Carl Paul Börner (1828-1905), an architect, was employed as one of the principal artists. They specialised in a form of maiolica using transparent glazes on deeply modelled forms. Within a few years the company was awarded prizes at Melbourne (1880) Frankfurt (1881) and Hamburg (1889) for its ceramics and also began manufacturing glass, metal and leather wares."
