Elchinger is a family business that Wendelin Elchinger (1809-1895) founded in 1834 in Soufflenheim (Alsace). The production was initially dedicated to culinary pottery. Fernand Elchinger (1911-1975) developed and modernized the factory and installed the first continuous-fire electric oven there. Driven by the enthusiasm for Vallauris ceramics, the Alsatian factory enjoyed a strong reputation with the production in the 1950s of vases and pitchers with refined shapes. From 1975 to the present day, the Elchinger dynasty is represented by Marc Elchinger and the production is resolutely oriented towards high-end tableware and home decor. After eight generations, the family manufacture definitively ceased its activities in June 2016.
