Who We Are
> 27 Years
Some of our happiest memories happen around the table – shared stories, savory meals, warm laughter. And sometimes, as was the case for brothers Scott and Eric Hamberger, devising a plan to follow their entrepreneurial passion and start a family business. So, in 1993 after finding inspiration in the quality and craftsmanship of fine German porcelain, the Hamberger brothers started importing and selling high quality dinnerware direct out of their parents’ garage.
Today, as back then, a love of shared meals and shared experiences remains the inspiration behind our thoughtfully designed, wellcrafted, long-lasting products. Whether you’re savoring a 4-course meal or grabbing a swig of coffee as you dash out the door, we know every moment matters to you. Our satisfaction comes from knowing that our products are part of your everyday experiences, both momentus and mundane, and that they’re up to the task.
