This is the jug 3003 by Klaus Breit for Wiesenthalhütte, the brother of 3002, presented in the same wonderful catalogue 1959 of Wiesenthalhütte.

3002 was shown by

If you look at the pictures you will see that glasses and jug differ slightly in color. I am slightly unhappy about this. I bought jug and glasses separately. The dealer of the jug didn't know what it was. But I think there is nor real doubt. The measures are exactly the same as in the WH catalogue. I prefer the violet of the glasses which is deeper and more intense. I am asking myself whether diffrence of colors is that of "Brombeer" (blackberry) and "Montan". Both colors exist in the 1959 catalogue and are very near.

    can the difference in color be because the glass of the jug is thicker , it has nothing to do with Brombeer or Montan your WH2002 has the color Montan
