The company called Karl Steubler was founded in 1886, by the porcelain decorator and merchant, Karl Bernhard Steubler at äussere Leipziger Strasse 72.

There were also other family members at the same address, Including, presumably, Karl Bernhard's father and mother. Christian Traugott Steubler was listed as a porcelain worker in 1885, and by 1892 was working in the kilns of one of the big manufacturers in the area. He died in that same year, and Emilie Auguste was first listed as his widow (Witwe) in 1893. 

By 1904/5 Karl Bernhard had opened a new store at Marienplatz 10, in central Zwickau, but still kept äussere Leipziger Strasse 72 open. In 1908/9  they invested in their own kilns in order to fire the glazes after decoration. Emilie Auguste (Witwe) was no longer listed by 1912/13. In the same year a pewter foundry was installed, and Karl Bernhard Steubler's son, Karl Jun. was working as a salesman at äussere Leipziger Strasse 72. By 1914/15 they had moved from Marienplatz 10 to the bigger, corner premises of Marienplatz 12, and äussere Leipziger Strasse 72 was shut down as a business address. Karl Bernhard Steubler had retired, and his son, Karl Jun. was co-proprietor of the family company together with Max Rämisch. Sometime between 1919 and 1922, the pewter foundry was closed down. In 1922/23 Karl Bernhard died leaving his widow Selma. Karl Jun. became known as Karl Steubler. By 1940/41 the enduring partnership of Karl Steubler Inhaber Karl Steubler und Max Rämisch was listed as an Arts and Crafts shop and with having had its own porcelain and glass decorating shop since 1886, at Marienplatz 12. In 1958 the company was taken over by the Groner family, but porcelain and glass decoration was not continued. The proprietor in 2006 was Joachim Groner, unfortunately in 2012 the company ceased trading.
