Chewie Prototype #2
Similar to the other Chewbacca prototypes on here, simple dark brown glaze, darker than the glaze on my Obi-Wan prototype, but appears to be an earlier design. Chewie's mouth is closed - no teeth showing.

This item is most likely a knock-off or fan-produced copy of a production Rumph stein and not a prototype.
Unlicensed copies such as these flooded the market in the late 1970s through the 80s due to the popularity of ceramics home crafting and ceramics courses.
Store-bought production steins were used to make molds for crafter studios and home use, copying the designs of the Rumph steins. The resulting items, as shown in this photo, can be found with a wide variety of quality level, makers, signatures, stamps, and variations, but without provenance and with a lower production quality, they are surely not prototypes but instead are copies by less experienced craftspeople and fans of the era.
