Biography

Factory specialising in pottery. The name 'Haël' was derived from the initial letters of Margret Marks's maiden name, Heymann, and that of her first husband, Gustav Loebenstein, with whom she established the factory in 1923. After her husband's death in 1928, Margret continued running the factory until it was closed by the Nazis in 1934.
