This squat form is quite common for the so-called "English brown jugs", as well as applied decorations that were called "springs" by English manufacturers, showing characteristic English gentlemen-beer lovers. Such very distinctive beer vessels were made in the mid-1800s by Doulton Lamberth, Kishere Mortlake, Denby, etc. Even the pewter lid is made in a specific English manner with the English-style small hinge. It is most lakely made specifically for the British market market - I also know of some similar S. Gerz beer steins with the inscription on the stein, which is the main element of design, made in English.It is quite possible that the whole "Gresrehnana" brand was even created for the British market This technique is specific to S. Gerz and is called "Gresrhenana" - I guess S.
Gerz hold a special patent rights on it that are indicated in Ges. The bottom is also marked with S. The stein is in excellent flawless condition - a collector's dream.Again, it is 6.5 tall to the top of the thumblift, 1.5 L capacity - large and impressive.
