Lovely cup and saucer and very interesting example. Thanks for uploading the picture.
I can easily solve your query.
Jacob Hertel of Bavaria German were a porcelain manufacturer founded in 1922. They survived under that name until around 1969.
Lutz are the Austrian retailer which bought the produce of Hertel. Founded in 1945, Lutz offered articles of Austrian craftsmanship such as rustic painted furniture and fine china.
Lutz developed into a large retailer and according to their current website are today "Europe’s largest home furnishings retailer".
Hope this helps!
