Kunst-Töpferei / Art Pottery. 
Seyffarth Keramik GmbH was founded in 1878 by Philipp Hafner Seyffarth. The company's founder continued art pottery in the Upper Franconian town which had had its heyday in the 17th and 18th Centuries. In 1919, Philip's son, Christian succeeded to the business, and gave up the oven production and devoted himself to oven tile production. In 1972 grandson Philip Veit Seyffarth modernized the operation in order to produce the world-famous Creußen steins. The fourth-generation Seyffarth, Christian, became a qualified ceramic engineer in 1989. In 1997 he took over the management and now heads the company with his wife Marion.
