�Gruss aus Muenchen�
(Greetings from Munich)

Created as the coat-of-arms or archival seal of Munich in 1239, the centrally depicted M�nchner Kindl (Munich Child) has evolved from a hooded monk standing in front of Munich�s gate to a charming child and symbol of the city. The Hofbr�uhaus and the Bavaria statue, two famous Munich landmarks, are pictured on the sides of the stein.

Blue-gray examples marked �Gr�s Nassovia� (Nassau stoneware), a term applied by Gerz to a series of items displaying relief decoration and a faux salt-glazed background in varying shades of blue.
