Since 1875, Kähler has been a leader in Danish art ceramics and an important innovator in ceramic glazes. The tradition started by Herman August Kähler has been passed down to many artists who worked for the company including Thorvald Bindesbøll, Svend Hammershøi, Jens Thurslund, and Kai Nielsen. The HAK signature after Herman August Kähler identifies all pieces made by Kähler.
