Postilion and Coach

Catalog No. 2176/3

Stoneware, enameled transfer, 0.5L, pewter lid.
Design attributed to Ludwig Hohlwein.

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

One of a series of more than two dozen, each featuring a different enameled transfer central image, as well as a hammered pewter lid and thumblift. Steins in the series are typically marked “2176” on the base and sometimes, but not always, with a hand-painted decoration number configured as “Hn” (in this case “H3”).
