Rare Antique Original Charater Beer Stein (rich Man) By Merkelbach & Wick C.1890

Here is a Rare Antique Original Charater Beer Stein (Rich Man) by Merkelbach & Wick c.1890. This stein is 7 3/8" tall by 6" wide from the handle to the rich mans belly by 2 3/4" across the inside top opening by 3 1/4" across the top outside opening by 3 3/4" across the bottom. The bottom has a faint Merkelbach & Wick mark as seen in photo's. This stein is in Great condition with no chips, cracks or flea bites except the lid is slightly loose and may need to be tightened at the hinged area. This character steins marketed by Merkelbach & Wick almost always carry an identifiable incised basemark. The mark found most often is the circle mark with a script M and W above Gr which stands for Grenzhausen . This mark was always used, but how deeply it was impressed dictates how easily one spots it. After 1921, when the factory changed their name to Wick-Werke, the most common character mark used was a large A with a G beneath the crossbar of the A and two Ws side-by-side under it. Only a few character steins with this mark have been found as production was limited after 1921.The pottery factory known as Merkelbach & Wick was founded by Friedrich Wilhelm Merkelbach II and Georg Peter Wick in 1872 in the Westerwald town of Grenzhausen (now known as Höhr-Grenzhausen). It was here they produced beer steins and related products under the Merkelbach & Wick name until 1921, when the factory name was changed to Wick-Werke. The character steins actually made by, marked, and marketed by Merkelbach & Wick were made in either blue-grey stoneware or cream stoneware and, in some cases, the same stein was produced in both materials. Though it is likely that some Merkelbach & Wick character steins were made in materials other than those listed, this book lists only those whose existence has been verified.Most of the character steins marketed by Merkelbach & Wick were made with pewter lid rims.Similar handles are found on many marked Merkelbach & Wick character steins. Many carry what can be called the stepladder or split stepladder style. This handle has horizontal rungs between two vertical uprights. Sometimes there is another vertical central upright splitting the handle design. In some instances, the handle also splits at the base where it attaches to the body. While this handle can also be found on other character steins not made by this factory, it was often used by Merkelbach & Wick.
