  • Existence: 1896 (date of birth) - 1985 (date of death)

Roger E. Ritter was born in Prague in 1896. From 1929 to 1938, he served as the director of the Bohemia - Moser retail store in Prague. After the Sudetenland Crisis in 1938, he immigrated to the United States. He opened an independent Bohemia - Moser store in New York City in 1938. There is some evidence that he intended to return to Prague and help restore the Bohemian glass industry after World War II, but Ritter remained in New York, working as a glass and porcelain buyer for R. H. Macy & Co.

Ritter died in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1985.
