Antique COBALT BLUE SALT GLAZE German 1901 A BEER STEIN Stoneware Joking Happy
Nice antique German Stein. 1901 date mark near handle. I believe this one may actually be made the year it’s marked. Good condition except one little glob of what looks like house paint towards top of stein near the handle. It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve found a drop of house paint on an item that was likely displayed on a shelf or table against a wall. It doesn’t bother me honestly. The floral design is extra pretty on this one and the characters are executed very skillfully. The work is a bit better than on many I think. There is a short line of poetry on one side. It translates to “With drinking and joking the heart stays happy” roughly. I’ll be listing about half a dozen or more German salt glaze steins all from the same estate collection in the coming days and weeks. Please check my other listings.
