Antique German Blown Glass/Stone Cut Beer Stein Silver Lid Shooting Club c. 1871
Antique German Bohemian Blown Glass Stone Cut Beer Stein Silver Lid Shooting Club c. This beautiful and impressive beer stein was made hand blown of crystal glass and elaborately cut to create vertical facets for the perfect optical effect. The steins of this kind came mostly from Bohemia – now the Western part of Czech Republic, before – a part of German Holy Roman Empire and at that time part of Austrian Empire. It has a beautiful nicely polished solid silver lid. The lid is elaborately engraved with a presentation inscription: Schutzen Clubb Zur Erinnerung 1870/1871 Ihrem Biermeier Sebastian It means that the stein was a gift from a Shooting Club to their Beer Master to commemorate his 1 year work. Apparently, there was a person in the shooting club who was a dedicated administrator of all the beer needs of the club members. The lid shows a beautiful figural thumblift with a copy of the Bavaria statue – a lady with a lion. It is a female personification of the Bavarian homeland, and by extension its strength and glory that was build in Munich, Germany between 1844 and 1850. I think it is safe to assume that the Shooting Club was in Munich. The lid is marked with the old German silver purity mark “13”. 812 used before 1886, and the maker’s mark “MW” The stein is in excellent condition. There is no chips or lines, the lid is in perfect condition as well. The stein is 7 to the top of the thumblift, 0.5L capacity. Materials: Cut crystal glass, silver lid.
