Gary Patterson Dentist Stein|
Stoneware, raised-relief and transfer decoration.
The stein wonderfully illustrates the fear so many of us have of dentists.
"The Check-Up" is a scene of a dentist concealing his pliers while the patient fends him off.
The second illustration is titled "The Dentist", in which the patient refuses to sit in the chair,
overwhelmed by the arsenal if dental gadgets and tools.
On top of the stein is an embossed pewter lid. Shown with front.
