Large Antique German Regensburg Beer Stein King Gambrinus w/Humorous Porcelain Lid Inlay c. Description: This type of very old German beer steins is traditionally called the “Regensburg” type, by the name of the region where it was first produced, even though the majority of them were produced in the Westerwald region. These steins are different from the very traditional Westerwald beer vessels – they did not use cobalt-based glaze so the steins keep natural clay color. In Germany, they call them “Model” steins referring to the method of manufacturing. They were produced from the 1850s to the late 1870s. These steins were press-molded to a wooden form, they were turned afterward to make the insides round, then they were fired and the salt was applied to create the very solid surface. The stein is circa the mid- to late-1867s. The relief decor in front of the stein shows King Ga mbrinus – the legendary inventor of hopped malt beer. The lid is pewter with a porcelain inlay showing a man in bed with two ladies taking off his nightgown. The inscription reads: ” Er soll alle Stunden 1 Essloffel voll nehmen ist aber vorher erst tuchtig zu schüsseln ” (He should take 1 tablespoonful every hour, but he has to be scooped up beforehand). My German is not that good to understand the humor of it but I guess there is a word play – it’s the medicine that should be scooped, not the patient. The stein is in excellent condition – a rare thing for a stein this old. On the other side – this type of stoneware is extremely hard and sturdy. The traditional cobalt-blue stoneware tends to release inner tensions more frequently resulting in hairlines. The natural color stoneware is usually free of this problem. There are some minor firing lines and other small manufacturing flaws – the pottery was mostly a manual job, – but no damage or repairs whatsoever. Nice and impressive antique beer vessel with about 150 years of history behind it. It is quite large and impressive – it stands 10 tall to the top of the thumblift, over 1L capacity.

Antique German Pressed Glass Beer Stein Inlaid Lid with Humorous Newlywed Scene c. Description: This very interesting German beer stein was made around late 1880s – early 1890s. The body of the stein is made of pressed glass with molded decorations showing two Cupids drinking – quite an unusual scene. The lid is inlaid with porcelain insert. The insert is nicely and skillfully painted porcelain miniature showing a lady in a floral shop asking the sales person. Dame: Haben sie etwas sinniges für neuver heurathete? Verkäufer: Gewiss, do nehmen sie einfach diesen Storchschnabel. Lady: Do you have something sensible for newly married couples? (The “cranesbill flowers” in German are called “Storkbeaks” therefore suggesting the bird that delivers babies) The stein is in excellent condition no chips, cracks or repairs. There are some age-related wear and some scratches on the bottom, but no damage whatsoever Please note – the glass steins are probably the only antique steins that could be used for their original purpose – they could be washed perfectly clean.
