A nearly identical 12 Apostle Creussen stein is pictured in the book Creussener Steinzeug (Creussen Stoneware) by Kroll on page 116, plate 60 (we can send you a scan).
And yet another nearly identical 12 Apostle Creussen stein was in the auction house of Dr. Jurgen Fischer in Germany (We can email you a copy) and had a minimum starting bid of 3,500 euros. (email us for the auction house link) That together with the buyer’s premium and VAT makes a minimum opening bid of about $6,200.
