Antique Early German Bavarian Pewter Beer Stein Walzenkrug Engraved dat. 1796
Antique German Bavarian Pewter Beer Stein Walzenkrug Engraved dat. Description: This very interesting and impressive beer stein was made in Germany about 200 years ago or more. It comes into the “Early” category – German beer stein manufactured before 1850 – the time of industrialization. Steins made before the industrial age were made and decorated by hand with every piece unique and special. It is a so-called “Walzenkrug” – a cylindrical form beer drinking vessel that was very popular in the 1700s – early 1800s. The thumblift is a hollow ball – please note that the hollow balls for the thumblift are a very good sign of authenticity. They never made solid balls for the thumblift before 1850 – 1860 and there are no repros with hollow balls – I guess it is very hard to reproduce. The lid of the stein is engraved with the original owner’s initials F. The inside of the lid shows the pewterer’s marks. The marks belong to Johann Adam Herold (or Herolt) who became a master in 1787 worked in the Bavarian town of Hof in the late 1700s. In fact, half of the pewterers ever worked in Hof had a family name Herold. The other half were Hohenners. I have in my inventory another beer stein fron Hof – it is dated 1836 and is the occupational shoemaker’s stein. The stein is in a very good condition – the pewter is very solid, there are some very minor age-related dings and scratches, but there is no major dents, damages or repairs whatsoever. Please note – the stein is an authentic original pewter drinking vessel from the late 1700s. The maker and the place are properly determined. The stein is 10.25 tall, 1L capacity. Height: 10.25 in.

The stein is very typical for the first half of the 1800s with large blown body and the ribbon type attached handle. The lover part of the body seems to be blown into a mold to create vertical facets without cutting. Very unusual and rare technique. Later, in 1860s, mold-blown glass steins became more common only to be replaced by pressed glass. This one shows the beginning of mold-blown technology. Nice pewter lid in perfect condition with a lion thumblift typical for late Biedermeier period of 1820 – 1830. Large 5-ring closed hinge. There is a pewterer’s hallmark on the inside of the lid – “Viehweg”. This mark belongs to one of the the master pewterers from the Vieweg (or Viehweg) family that was working in German Saxony for several generations. The stein is in excellent condition. Note, that the lower part of the handle is not broken – it was the method of attaching these days when the lower part was snapped after attaching. This method was used up to 1860s. Sometimes the snapped end was a little polished, but most of the time it was left as is. Please note – the stein is original from the period! I guarantee my description and dating.

Antique Early German Etched Glass Beer Stein Swan Thumblift circa 1830s. This beautiful stein was made in the 1830s, it is guaranteed old give ot take 10 years. It is made in a very traditional style of freehand blown glass with copper whell engraving and the pewter lid. The stein is decorated with etched drawings of stylized floral design. This type of decoration was produced with a small copper wheel. Cutting and engraving glass with lathe mounted copper wheels smeared with a grit paste is older than glass itself, originating in early Babylon or Egypt with cut gemstones. The belt driven lathe carries a range of interchangeable spindles, each carrying a copper wheel of varying width, diameter and profile, to suit the cut. A loose paste of emery or carborundum grit, oil and paraffin is applied to the turning copper wheel. The lid is pewter with the thumblift in form of swan spreading wings and lowering its neck, and 5-ring closed-type hinge. The animal/bird thumblifts were mostly used in the 1820s-1840s. I have a feeling that these swan or maybe it is heron? With lowering the neck is maybe connected with a loss of a person and comfoting gift. The lid is engraved with initials M. ” The lid is also stamped with the pewterer’s mark – “J. The stein is in excellent condition – a very rare occurence with the steins these old. There are no lines, no chips or any other damage to the body whatsoever. The lid is in good shape with no damage or repairs and is sitting pretty tight.

The Muskauer stoneware was slightly lighter with thinner walls than it’s Westerwald counterpart, but still very sturdy and strong.

Large Antique Early German Beer Stein Bartmann Bellarmine Frechen c. 1600 1700s
Antique Large Very Early German Beer Stein Bartmann Bellarmine Frechen circa late 1600 – early 1700s. Description: This beer stein is one of the oldest beer drinking vessels. It dates back to the years of late 1600s – early 1700s and was made in the town of Frechen – one of the most important centers of early stoneware production in Germany. The tradition of “Bartmann” or “Bearded man” beer steins began in mid 1400s in the town of Cologne – another important stoneware production center in Renaissance period Germany. It became so popular that every town in Rheinland that was involved in pottery produced their own version for almost two hundred years. There are very similar Bartmann beer steins produced in Raeren, Siegburg, etc. The stein is made of brown saltglazed stoneware. The bearded face was made on a separate medallion and applied. There is also two impressed horse-shoe images underneath that looks like woman’s breasts. It looks like some jokester ordered the impressions for a good luck and also as a naughty joke. The bearded man steins from Frechen are the most classical of all the Bartmann pieces. They were produced for over a century and exported in large quantities to England, Scandinavia and the New World. The stein is in excellent condition for about 300 – 350 years old. Most of the Bartmannskruege are repaired or restored. This one has no structural damage and no repairs and no major cracks. There are some glaze chipping spot in the body and some minor surface crazing. Just very minor age-related wear. Other than that – no problems. This size is larger than usual and the condition is extremely rare. This is a beautiful and very impressive piece that has about 400 years behind it! I guarantee my description and my dating. I hav attached a picture from the late Johannes Vogt beer stein catalog – it shows a very similar stein. The stein very large and heavy is 13.5 tall (34 cm), 7 lb of weight.
