Designed between 1924–31. Manufactured and marked by Jenaer Glas and Schott & Gen. 

Manufactured and marked at Jenaer Glas and Schott & Gen.  In 1918, the company begins producing household glass, all bearing the trade name Jenaer Glas.  In the 1930's the company's products were visibly influenced by the design concepts of Bauhaus, an important art movement. It brightest stars all put their stamp on Jenaer products. Perhaps the most famous of these is the teapot created by Wilhelm Wagenfeld. This item, arguably the most stylish teapot ever conceived, continues to be made today. I am so lucky to have this original piece of functional design! With the rise of Hitler and his Nationalist Party much of German industry was converted to military use. Jenaer Glas was no exception. The company's glass-making expertise was recruited to help in the war effort. And paid an enormous price for this. The factory was bombed heavily during the war.
