Kk Hüttenmeister Ritter was born on January 5, 1807 in Aussee as a son

of the kk Pfannhausverwalter Josef Ritter born and died on

March 27, 1884  in Aussee in his house at Gartengasse 4, still today

known as the "Ritterhäusel".

After his checkered service - recorded in 1829 as

mountain student, he worked in Ebensee, in Ischl, in Hallein, in Hallstatt, 

he also served in the Galician kk Salinas - he came in 1851 as

Hüttenmeister to Aussee.

The "Hüttenschaffer" Ritter became known in 1840 when he died

introduced desk firing in the construction of a brick kiln with great success.

He saved firewood and through the complete combustion of the wood, the salt

be obtained purer.

In addition to his work, he dealt with current topics, which he recorded in drawings. He is described as a "funny coot" and became more than locally known for his apt joke drawings. Experts referred to him as "Wilhelm Busch von Aussee".

Numerous pen drawings also received  Anna Plochl, who also valued his art very much.

 

Hüttenmeister Ritter also gave an interesting description of carnival in 1876, in which  he finally said:

"....Memories of 3 beautiful days, the culmination of a momentous dream, similar to our whole life, where everyone tries to fool the other and to meet the task of finding their way forward by deceiving their neighbor."
