A stein produced for the Gasthof Zum Rotenhahn, around 1890-1900.
There is a white glazing inside the stein, comparable with the white glazing commonly found on Villeroy & Boch Mettlach steins. Reinhold Merkelbach also used this inside glazing for some of their steins, but it is not common(http://www.mysteincollection.com/catalogue/view_item.php?art_ID=332).
The text on this stein reads: "Gasthof Zum Rotenhahn - Bes. A. Harms" .
No mold number; commissioned stein.
