This mug is shaped like the legendary Krampus, with a white underglaze and dark red wipe finish. This mug is based on the work of Florian Bertmer with contributions by Matthew Black and Tiki Farm. Krampus is a beast-like creature from the folklore of Alpine countries thought to punish children during the Yule season who had misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards well-behaved ones with gifts. Krampus gives out coal and switches and is said to capture particularly naughty children in his sack and carry them away to his lair. Krampus is represented as a beast-like creature, generally demonic in appearance with horns and a long protruding tongue.
There was also a second edition variant in Nutmeg Brown.
