German ceramic, Reinhold Hanke, 1/2L, Figural. The Text on the body reads: De humani corporis fabrica.
And translates to: " The Human Body ". Overall a nearly mint condition stein with very strong colors and great presentation... An interesting piece, you have a very intelligent looking monkey reading a book by Darwin "The Human Body". Also, the writing on this stein is in Latin. Which is not a very common feature on German beer steins.That said, there is one condition issue I need to mention. On the back of the Lid there appears to be a factor defect where the Ceramic Top hat was left with a bit of a gap. It does not detract from the piece at all(IMO) as it is in the back and not visible when viewing the piece head on/slightly rotated, as it would typically be displayed. Let me know if you have any questions and thank you for looking. The item "RH 1/2L Darwin Monkey German beer stein Antique Figural mold # 1444" is in sale since Sunday, October 14, 2018.
