This would make such a cool and unique gift! There is nothing manufactured about this, they are completely hand crafted by my husband and I. There is a lot, and I mean a lot, of work that goes in to each one. Each stein is thrown porcelain. The handle is crafted to look like bone/vertebrae and are really comfortable to hold. They are then crystalline glazed (see next paragraph). I made the molds for the lids out of an original I created, this one has a thumb rest modelled from a jewelry finding of a Greek goddesses profile. My husband is doing the metal casting itself and each one is cast on to the piece. The hinge is fully functional. I don't think you will find anything similar to these! The final touch is hand polishing to give it a beautiful shine!

This one stands between 5 1/2 " tall (not including thumb rest) and holds 2 fluid cups (16 oz).

Crystalline glazed ceramics is a very involved process. The flower-like appearance of the glaze is actually zinc crystals that grow in the glaze during a slow controlled cooling after the peak temperature is reached. The glaze is very fluid and tends to run of the pot so a catcher is also thrown and fired under the piece to catch the run off glaze. The catcher is then separated and the bottom is ground down if there are any sharp edges or uneven glaze pools. Since the process is so involved there is a lot that can go wrong, so each successful piece is precious and completely unique.

Interior is glazed white and is food safe (no lead or heavy metals). Because of lid hand-washing is recommended and it is not microwave safe.
