Little Red Riding Hood

Catalog No. (F21)

Enameled stoneware, figural, 0.25L, hand-marked “55”.

Little Red Riding Hood is the title character from a well-known folktale which first appeared in print as “Le Petit Chaperon Rouge” in a 1697 French text on morality by Charles Perrault. Through this story, young ladies were warned to never talk to strangers, lest they end up in the clutches of a wolf.

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).

Price Range: $600-$800
