Catalog No. (F10)
Enameled stoneware, figural, 0.25L, hand-marked “58”.
This is one of a series of eleven character steins designed by Franz Ringer, manufactured by Merkelbach & Wick, and then hand-enameled, probably at the Jacob Reinemann facility in Munich. Most have been seen only in a ¼-liter size and were apparently made specifically for children. They typically carry an incised “J. Reinemann/München” bottom mark and a hand-painted decoration number (49–59).
