A nice porcelain character stein of 4 men sharing one umbrella. The umbrella is the pewter lid.
The stein has a litopane in the bottom. The side of the tang is marked N.B.M., for Nathan Bauernfreund in Munich, the pewterer (related link). The mark is found on more pieces by Schierholz, so although the stein itself is not marked Schierholz, this is a strong indication that it is indeed by that manufacturer.
