Bavarian Alpine Mountain

Catalog No. 5039

Pottery, figural, 1.0L.

This stein depicts an unnamed mountain in the Bavarian Alps, bearing marked trails to �Bairischzell� (or Bayrischzell), Birkenstein and �Branenburg� (or Brannenburg), three Bavarian Alpine villages. Perhaps its most eye-catching feature is the stein�s figural handle, formed in the shape of a �Tazlwurm� (or Tatzelwurm), sometimes called an �Alps Dragon�, a mythical lizard-like creature with the legless hind-end of a serpent, shown below emerging from the mountain and breathing fire.

Price Range: $1,000-$1,200
