Hoflieferant in Eisenach (P.T.u.E.) Herzogtum Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach / Supplier to the court of Charles Alexander, Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach. 
 The factory was founded in 1858 with the manufacture of furnaces. Production of earthenware Grecian style vases commenced 1864. They did not have the capability to produce stoneware, so all stoneware steins were purchased in for decoration. To show off their expertise they exhibited at the 1873 World Exhibition in Vienna, where amongst other items the following were catalogued: 1. 2, 3, 4, 5.  Saeltzer died on 10th May 1880. The company was purchased by Louis Martini, a mould maker from Meissen who intoduced the involvement of transfers into the decoration process. The company was inherited by Marie Martini in 1898 and was known to be the owner, together with Paul Martini, as the merchant, both in 1900 and 1906. Jacob Winkler, a merchant, owned the company from 1912 to 1922. It was finally wound up in 1930.
