This stein, (mould #783), in the standard glaze, was presented in 1895, to John A. Townley, a member of the Commercial Club of Cinncinati, as shown by text around the base. The date of 1894 is also around the stein below the lid in Roman numerals, (MDCCCXCIV).Since the club had fifty members, there were only fifty examples presented. They were each hand-painted by a different artist, and therefore were all unique. This particular example was decorated by Daniel Cook.
