The iconic Munich child, symbol of the city, is portrayed on the front of this German porcelain stein holding two radishes (a popular German beer food) and toasting a stein frothing over with beer. The child balances on a hop vine and banner that scrolls around him reading "Gruss aus München" (Greetings from Munich). Bayern - Bavaria shields encircled by wreaths are displayed on either side. The handle features a flower bouquet with Bavarian blue and white colored ribbons.

Benefits of Porcelain and Ceramic Beer Steins
Before the invention of mass produced, affordable pewter and glass, ceramic mugs were the most common beer drinking vessels of choice. Their thick, insulated design made them durable, they were relatively cheap to produce, and their smooth surface makes stone easy to clean.
Porcelain and ceramic beer mugs are still in use today, and they are often considered to be the supreme drinking vessels by many beer drinking purists. Porcelain, while it is more delicate than fire treated stoneware, pewter mugs, and other modern mugs, it still makes an excellent material for decorative and collector beer steins.
