Rare pottery from long ago

Previous to the start of World War one in 1914, a lot of pottery beer mugs were imported from Germany.  Alberta breweries ordered a distinctive shaped mug or glass called a beaker in the sales literature.  Calgary Jim recently obtained a nice example from Lethbridge Brewing that is imprinted with the  Alberta’s Pride brand.  Beside it is an example of the exact same shape beaker from Golden West in Calgary, I wonder  if other Alberta breweries also used this style of advertising mug.  Keep looking!

Sorry about the beer can in the photo, I could not figure out how to crop the photo, but it is a nice can as well from the Port Dover motorcycle show.
