Antique German Saxonian Biedermeier Glass Beer Stein Blown and Enameled Freundschaft c. A classical German glass beer stein from the period of late Biedermeier 1820s – to 1850s. Beer steins made before 1850 fall into the “early” category – they were nade w pre-industrial period using manual techniques and old technologies. Blown crystal glass with applied thick handle and large pontil mark. Squeezed-ball thumblift and five-ring closed type hinge – all typical for the late Biedermeier period. Hand-painted and decorated with beautiful enameled decorations using great skills – a true antique art object. This type of glass beer steins were made in the German state of Saxony in 1820s-1850s. The shield on front is inscripbed with gold – the inscription is worn but I think it says “Freundschaft” – “Friendship” – the stein was given by someone as a gift to a friend. The lid is engraved with the intials J. Very good condition of the glass with some age-related wear to the paint. Nice very typical beer drinking vessel over 180 years old! I guarantee my dating. 5.5 tall to the top of the thumblift, about 0.4 L capacity. Please note that the glass beer steins are perfectly safe to use for their purpose – to drink beer!
