Mulled Wine Recipe and something to serve it in

My own yummy mulled wine recipe.
1 cup cider
I cup concord grape juice
1 bottle red wine, like merlot or cabernet
Brown sugar to taste 1/4 - 1/2 cup
3 cinnamon sticks
One Orange, peeled in one long coil studded with four cloves
The juice from the orange
Heat gently till sugar is dissolved

And we have a very unique item for service.
From the "Dutch Estate" Is this salt glazed "Motto Ware" German Wine crock.
I believe it was made just for this purpose.
The Google translator was less than forthcoming about translation.
It is German and says very enthusiastic things about wine.
Cobalt decoration and a lid with a figural little gnome one top....the body of the crock is near pristine but the little guys nose is broken and the lid has some minute damage. Nothing that would really stop it from being a show stopper. After a cup of wine...I would suspect all will be well with the world.
