This vintage ceramic beer mug features an enormous wolf (or fox) as the handle!
"Die grüne Heid des Jägers Freud" translates from German to English as:
"The green moorlands the hunter’s joy"
This ceramic beer stein is a forest scene, covered in wild boars and deer (or elk)
There is a hunting horn on this, too.
6 7/8" high
3" across bottom
2 7/8"across top
etched into the bottom: Made in Japan
Colors: shades of browns, greens, with black and some red detailing.
This is in excellent condition, with just a little bit of crazing.
The handle appears to be slip set: it is not cracked, even though it appears as a line on the image of the back side, it is sturdy and ready to display.
Great kitschy decor for a German themed restaurant or ski resort, or bar (or home lounge).
