This highly collectible mug, or tankard, has so much going for it! First of all, the hand painting is very well done, particularly the facial expression and hair of the monk; secondly, it is signed by artist A. HEIDRICH (Heidrich, Adolf J.). Adolf Heidrich was the son of famed Trenton Pottery artist Anton Heidrich. Following in his father's footsteps, Adolf became quite the artist himself. After working in the Trenton Pottery area, he came to Chicago and worked for Donath Studio before opening up his own studio. There is some school of thought that he also worked for Pickard and might be the elusive "Mr. Hardwick". He is well-known for his porcelain painting of monks and animal scenes. Lastly, the charming roly-poly shape of this stein is very in keeping with the hand painted design.

The blank is from Hohenzollern, Germany and stands about 5 1/2" tall. It is about 4" across the mid section and is 2 5/8" at the top. It is in extremely fine condition with only the most minimal gold loss to the high points on the handle. Donath decorating mark 6 (1910-1915)
