Antique German Jugendstil/Art Nouveau Beer Stein Merkelbach and Remy #156 c. 1910
Antique German Jugendstil Art Nouveau Beer Stein Merkelbach and Remy #156 c. This beautiful stein designed in the Jugendstil style – the German version of Art Nouveau – was made by Merkelbach and Remy, one of the small and obscure manufacturing factories in the Hohr-Grenzhausen region of Germany. The factory was established in 1907. It is not very clear which exactly Merkelbach and which exactly Remy were the founders – these families had a large presence in the Westerwald area, It was made around the early 1910s of the very traditional German saltglazed stoneware. The stein has this special round form and the design is made out of repeating elements – that was a popular motif in German Jugendstil beer stein decorations. It is hard to tell who was the artist – the design is similar to several Jugendstil beer stein designers. The lid is pewter with a beautifully engraved initials on the top of the lid: J.
