    This is one of the earliest designs of Klaus Breit after he entered in the enterprise of his father and convinced him to make consumer glass. It's a jug, 23 cm high, designed in 1957 and figuring in the first catalogue of Wiesenthalhuette in 1959/60, Model No. 2002 (see picture frome the catalogue). It's clearly inspired by Scandinavian design. It also exists in red. The cup is in teak wood and cork.

      This one is absolutely beautiful!!! h, I'd love to get ne just like this. I'm really loving your collection!!!
    2. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 9 years ago
      Mmmm... I just got a red one LOL :) I simply couldn't resist it.

      I love the fact of already having three red Klaus Breit jugs! :)
    3. cobaltcobold cobaltcobold, 9 years ago
      @austrohungaro You are immoderate! Three of them, but there only two different colors, am I right?
    4. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 9 years ago
      haha! I didn't mean three jugs of this kind, but this one in red plus the other two you know from 1957 and 1968 (this ones: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/44940-3-jugs-designed-by-h-h-engler-and-klaus?in=user) :)

      Oh, and I got a set of 6 matching glasses (in 6 different colours) for the 1957 jug!!! I will upload the pictures as soon as I get them :)

      I guess there's only the two colours you mentioned... you're the Wiesenhalhütte expert! LOL

      I'd kill for this jug (with or without cork)
      It was available in K (Kristall), GRT (Granat), Olive (O), Montan (MO) and Tundra (T)
    6. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 9 years ago
      Mmmm.. what did they undesrtand as Montan and Tundra colours at WH??? I am guessing Tundra is this bluish-grey or greyish-blue... Montan should be purple then?
    7. GlasswareGuy GlasswareGuy, 9 years ago
      K = clear
      GRT = red
      O = dark green
      MO = blue grey (but it looks purple in the WH catalogue)
      T = brighter version of olive green

      glasswareguy i think there is a clear one on ebay.de
    9. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 9 years ago
      two of them in fact, but just a cork instead of the teak stopper
    10. GlasswareGuy GlasswareGuy, 9 years ago
      Like I already told Alejandro, I'm not a big fan of clear glass.
      I just love a bit of colour. ;-)
    11. cobaltcobold cobaltcobold, 9 years ago
      @austrohungaro @GlasswareGuy. I have the same predilections. There are not so many clear glass items that I love. The jugs are too expensive, The teak stopper is missing. And the price is rather high, isn't it?
    12. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 9 years ago
      It may be the cork is a original one... I got a Karl Breit jug with a cork -I think from the early 70s- but it still doesn't look theright thing in this case. By the way, didn't they also have glass stoppers for these jugs?

      Clear glass is a tiny part of my collection. I always think twice about buying a clear glass piece.
