2973 - Herz von Bayern 1 L Mug
This kannenbaecker mug, hand crafted in Germany, measures 7-1/2 inches in height and holds one liter (33.8 oz) of your favorite beverage. A classic gray salt glaze and cobalt blue stamped "Herz von Bayern" ("Heart of Bavaria") design complete the piece.

Salt glaze pottery is stoneware with a glaze of glossy, translucent, and slightly orange peel-like texture which is formed by throwing common salt into the kiln during the firing process. Sodium from the salt reacts with silica in the clay body to form a glassy coating of sodium silicate.

The craft and tradition of salt glaze stoneware goes back to the 15th century, when artisans of the Westerwald region of Germany perfected the craft and developed their signature style of stamped, cobalt blue decorations.
