Created as the coat-of-arms or archival seal of Munich in 1239, the centrally depicted Münchner Kindl (Munich Child) has evolved from a hooded monk standing in front of Munich’s gate to a charming child and symbol of the city. This stein exists both with and without “Gruss aus München” over the central image.

Price Range: $600-$750
