The legacy of the tiled-stove fitters Keiser

The stove-fitting workshop Keiser was in operation in Zug from 1856 to 1938. It was well known beyond the local region for restoring historical tiled stoves – for example for the Swiss National Museum in Zurich – and for creating replicas of old stoves. The workshop mainly produced stoves in the Winterthur style and later also in the rococo and art nouveau styles. The extended clientele even included the King of Romania. The Keiser estate consists of stove tiles, various types of pottery, casting moulds and tools, and an extensive archive of documents, specialist publications, drafts and plans for stoves as well as patterns for tile designs.
