Surface wiped carefully and inspected for sale. No chips, cracks, or repairs. Stein was very likely displayed in a kitchen setting for a long time where cooking grease has accumulated on the pewter. Leaving more detailed cleaning decisions to future owner. There is what appears to be a production flaw on the body rim as photographed. With a jewelers loope, it appears that production blemish is covered by glaze and light color area is raised (not a chip into the stein or material missing). No notable physical damage found. Hinge and strap are tight and operate as intended. Normal / expected production flaws consistent with steins produced during the turn of the 20th century. Has the look and feel of having been a cherished display only piece since its creation in 1899.
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.
