Stoneware, raised-relief and transfer decoration. Award-winning wildlife artist James A. Meger drew both full-color panels on this stein. A head portrait of a mallard drake and hen is shown on one side of the stein, and the other side shows the pair in full flight over a shoreline.
Each panel is framed with an elk-horn design border. The stein features raised-relief top and bottom bands, consisting of pine cones, evergreen branches, oak leaves, and acorns.
This pattern is repeated on the relief pewter lid. The thumblift is in the shape of an oak leaf.
The lid has a slight "rub" mark on it and is the only issue with this wonderful stein.
