German Beer Steins Vintage Lidded. These steins are in great condition. The small one is from the King company.
Short YouTube condition video link in description below for best views. Surface cleaned and inspected for sale. Wear commensurate with age, display, storage, and moving. Expected antique production technique flaws. Interior crazing and spots as shown. Center hinge ring was broken sometime in the past. The upper portion of the broken ring protrudes slightly and prevents lid from opening fully. Opens as far as shown in photos. Appears someone tried an at-home repair to bend or remove the pewter that protrudes. I have not and will not attempt any repairs. I will leave any cleaning or repairs to future owner. Strap and strap support are tight. Awesome, surviving example of this more scarce stein would make a very special gift for the antique, sports related, or character beer stein collector.
