The Buttersppon is part of a new product series "Höfer Goods" which is rooted in narratives, materials and skills that are particular to the village.

For 2006 the chosen subject was "frog"., to make the link between the village and product obvious. The villagers are called "the frogs", related to a frog pond next to village. The pond doesn't exist anymore, but the nickname remains. The first series of Höfer Goods will relate to frogs and frog stories, both literally and more abstract. We chose porcelain as the material for the first products because of its high production value and a regional link to porcelain manufacturing.

Der Butterlöffel ist Teil der "Höfer Waren" eine Produktreihe, deren Ursprung in speziell Höfer Geschichten, Materialien und praktischen Fähigkeiten zu finden ist.

Für das Jahr 2006 das Thema Frosch wurde zum Leitmotiv. Die Höfer werden von den umliegenden Gemeinden "Höfer Frösch" genannt, nach einem am Ortseingang liegenden Froschweiher, den es jedoch nicht mehr gibt.

Hergestellt sind die Produkte in Porzellan, zum einen um ihnen eine hohe Wertigkeit zu geben, aber auch aufgrund der regionalen Bedeutung von Porzellanmanufakturen.
