Large Antique Early German Westerwald Stoneware Beer Stein Walzenkrug w/Fantasy Stag/Deer c. Description: The beer steins made before 1850 are quite rare – at that time, before the industrial revolution, the production was all manual. Every stein made in the early period was unique, decorated by hand and rarely replicated. This beautiful stein was made in the early 1800s, it is guaranteed old give or take 10 years. It is made in a very traditional style of gray stoneware with cobalt-blue glaze. This is a very traditional beer drinking vessel – a type that was produced for over centuries, from mid-1600s to mid-1800s. The production of saltglazed stoneware beer steins in the Westerwald region of Germany reached the highest quality by the end of 18th century. The center of the stein features a stylized fantasy deer stag with an arrow targeting him – a wild artistic representation. The decorations are etched into the clay with a sharp instrument, glazed with cobalt-blue glaze, fired and saltglazed. The lid is pewter with an urn-shaped thumblift – this type of thumblifts was used from 1810s till about 1840. The hinge and the body decorations suggest it was made around 1820s. The stein is in excellent shape – there is no damage or repairs in the body – no lines, chips or repairs. This is a rare and very valuable condition for a 200-year-old piece. The lid is in excellent shape as well, with only minor age-related wear. The stein stands 9 tall to the top of the thumblift, about 1L capacity. I guarantee the authenticity. Condition: Excellent with minor wear. Title: Antique Early German Westerwald Stoneware Beer Stein w/Fantasy Horse c. Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing. Track Page Views With.

Antique German Beer Stein Creussen Apostles Apostelkrug c. Description: Antique German beer stein made to imitate Renaissance period beer steins made in Creussen in 1600s. These Creussen beer vessels were extremely expensive at the time and very prestigious. In 1880s – 1890s several beer stein manufacturers produced steins imitating faience of 1700s, Creussen and Annaberg stoneware and some Westerwald stoneware of 1600s – 1700s. They were not trying to fake or reproduce them but just worked in popular at the time style called Historismus. This stein is a fine example of Historismus style. It’s form and decorations imitate Creussen steins of mid-1600s with the Twelve Apostles Theme – they show 12 figures with halos representing the twelve Apostles. The stein is made of dark brown stoneware – exactly like Creussen’s – handpainted with brightly colored ceramics paint. The stein has no cracks, chips or other structural damage. Some extensive paint wear. The lid is engraved with initials F. The lid is original to the date but is a replacement lid for the stein. The foot ring is original to the stein. Please note – I have included a picture from Johannes Vogt catalog to show the original Creussen. It is not the one for sale. It is 7 tall to the top of the finial, 1L capacity. Condition: Paint wear, replacement lid. Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing. Track Page Views With. Please note – I have included a picture f.
5L Glazed German Pottery Beer Stein with Lid Condition: Pre-Owned Good.
This antique German stoneware beer stein depicts a lively tavern scene in relief and is a fine addition to any breweriana collection. Crafted around 1900, this large lidded stein was made in Germany and features intricate details that showcase the country’s rich brewing heritage. Blue Red Green and Cream colors! A lidded stein, and it appears to have been manufactured in Germany but makers mark appears to have been worn over time and age. The stein’s theme revolves around breweriana, and the hunting scene depicted on it adds to its uniqueness. There are two noted things that I want to call out. One the top of the pewter lid appears to be slightly bent (could be how it was made but I want to call it out). Two there is a slight crack on bottom of stein. It’s not through and is hairline.
