Alfons Lötschert's (b.17th April 1863 - d.24th November 1945). company was founded on the 29th March 1912 and was in production until 1919. After S.P Gerz I died in 1893, Lötschert, being S.P.Gerz's son in law, took control of the company Simon Peter Gerz I. However in 1912 he set up in his own name in Gerz's original stoneware works. It has been suggested that he took both some moulds and personnel with him. He sold parts of the property, ie.a kiln and various moulds and materials in 1919 to
Dr Fritz Hammerschmidt who was listed at Oststraße 9, in 1921.
