August Heinrich Fuchs was a trader, who was married to Maria Catharina Corzelius from the well known family of Westerwald potters. He was born in 1839 in Baumbach, Germany, and died in Amsterdam in 1914.  He established a shop in Amsterdam, selling Westerwald stoneware. In 1897 they acquired the Dutch nationality. 

Their son Jacob August Fuchs, born 7 October 1866 in Amsterdam, kept the business going until at least 1932.
