The pottery Kähler Keramikværksted was founded in 1839 and was a family pottery until 1974.
All the pottery is signed with "HAK" after the son of the founder Herman August Kähler. Nils Kähler is from the last generation before the pottery closed.
Today a new company produces pottery with the Kähler label but it´s not handmade in Denmark anymore.
