This is a large Mug / Tankard beautifully hand painted. The artist has painted his rendition of two grouse in tall prairie grass on a blue and green background. He has outlined some of the green blades of grass in black and some he has left not outlined as a shadowy effect. He has painted the birds a gold and brown color and has outlined the feathers and facial features in black. He has completed this piece with a gold rim on top and bottom and a beautiful gold handle. The artist "A.O. Balthasar" has signed the bottom of this piece. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
Backstamp: BAVARIA Measures: 7" H x 6" W with Handle
