Teller Cigar Factory, also known as Sprecht Clothing Company, is a historic factory building located at Sellersville, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The original section was built about 1866, and expanded in 1895. The original section is a 2 1/2-story, stone structure and the addition a 2 1/2-story, brick structure. Both structures are plastered and have gable roofs. The building is 10 bays wide and 4 bays deep. It represents the transition of the cigar industry from home manufacture to being housed in large manufacturing facilities. It was occupied by a cigar manufacturer at least into the 1920s, and later used as a warehouse for a plumbing and heating supply company.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1]
