Antique German Art Nouveau/Jugendstil Pewter Serving Beer Stein Bicycle Bike League c. Presented is a beautiful and very stylish beer stein designed in a very distinctive Jugendstil style – the German version of Art Nouveau. This style is very specific to Germany – it is characterized by simplistic and at the same time unusual linear forms. This style was extremely popular at the time. It lasted only a decade or two, but changed the perception of design forever. The stein is decorated with a Radfahrer Bund (Bicycle League) medallion and a presentation inscription: Ihren Wunderfahrten zum Andenken. 21 I guarantee the dating of around 1905 give or take 3 – 5 years. The stein is in a very good condition with some minor scratches and dings unavoidable in such a soft metal as pewter but no structural damages, losses, or repairs. It would require some cleaning but I will leave it to the new owner – some people prefer the antique look and patina for the pewter objects, some like to polish them to get a near silver impression it was intended to give at the time of manufacturing. The stein is quite large and impressive, standing 15.5 tall to the top of the thumblift, 2L capacity. Height: 15.5 in. Get images that make Supersized seem small. Track Page Views With.
