Postilion and Coach

Catalog No. 426/1

Stoneware; hand-incised; 1.0L, 0.5L, 0.25L; pewter lid.

Postilions carried the mail between post houses along their route, typically traveling mounted on one of the horses pulling a chaise (or post) coach.

Central image taken from No. 2176/3, a pre-WWI design by Ludwig Hohlwein.

Appearing initially in a 1938 Merkelbach sales catalog, the intervention of World War II resulted in most production of this “handgeritzt” stein actually occurring in the 1950s through 1970s.
