Ich bin die Grethl Jederzeit zum lustig sein und spass bereit. Grethl (or Gretel [diminutive for Margret]) is a character in German puppet theater who often appears as the friend, sister or wife of the jester Kasper. And who, despite the text on this stein, often has to curb Kaspers foolishness. This is one of a series of eleven figural steins designed by Franz Ringer. Manufactured by Merkelbach & Wick, and then hand-enameled, probably at the Jacob Reinemann facility in Munich.
Most have been seen only in a ¼-liter size and were apparently made specifically for children. They typically carry an incised J. Overall this is in great condition. I do not see any chips or cracks. The only flaw that I noticed is that the metal handle is loose and can slide down the handle.
I took a picture of this so you can see what I mean. You will receive exactly what is pictured.So please use the pictures to judge the condition for yourself. So any questions, please ask first!!
