This is the only lidded stein I know of in the Rumph archives. It stands 9" tall x 7" wide x 5" deep.

I have one of these, which is very similar in coloration to the webmaster's. My stone, however is glued in with that thick flexible "rumphy" glue Jim used on some other things I've seen. Also, my lid is hinged with leather instead of twine.

Mine has a green stone.

I am still searching, but mine came with a small pamphlet that stated it was a fertility tankard, I am trying to find it! Mine is in great shape, rock glued in to the hand and a leather tie to keep the lid on.

On your site, he's called a "Stone-throwing Ogre Tankard". I was always under the impression that he was presenting the stone to the maiden as a gift. She's facing it, and he's looking up at her - probably waiting to see what her reaction will be. Since so many of Jim's early works are concerned w/ the old "beauty and the beast" story line, has anyone considered this way of viewing the piece?

Mine had a pink tongue - only one I've ever seen that way

Mine still has the tag attached. According to th tag his mermaiden is named scrumptous and this is a stoneware fertility tankard. The copyright on mine is 1972. He is holding a black rock and has a leather tie holding his top on.

Mine has a tag on it "Gem Grabbing Maiden Covered Mug"
