Grotesques with Oak Branches

Catalog No. 32

Stoneware, relief, 0.75L, pewter lid.

This design was copied from an actual Renaissance period piece, one of some forty-two Renaissance replicas first manufactured by Merkelbach in the early 1900s and reproduced regularly thereafter. These items were numbered 1 through 42, duplicating numbers applied to earlier Merkelbach offerings.

The oak is the national tree of Germany, and has been a symbol of German culture since the days of the early Germanic tribes.

Same model number applied to a stein depicting a Drinking Society.
