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.
Excellent clean and undamaged.
Antique Early German Westerwald Stoneware Beer Stein Enghalskanne c. Description: The beer steins made before the 1800s 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. Presented is an excellent quality saltglazed stoneware beer stein from around the early 1700s. The stoneware produced in Germany, especially in the Westerwald region was technologically superior to all the ceramics in the world at this time (except, probably, porcelain). The stein is decorated with incised geometrical decor and cobalt-blue glaze. It has a ball-shaped body with a round base and long neck – this form is traditionally called “Enghalskanne” or “long neck pitcher”. Most of the stein made in 1600s – early 1700s has some applied decorations, but there were some with only the incised ones as well. The shape of the stein, the pewter and specifically the petrification of the stoneware – all points to the early 18th century production. The lid is pewter with scalloped thumblift – typical for the period of the late 1600s – early 1700s, and five-ring closed type hinge. The specific way the rings are set – they are thin with some larger gaps between – indicate the early 1700s as well. I have provided a picture of a very similar – almost identical – stein/pitcher from the late 1600s, taken from the late Johannes Vogt catalog. This one is a little later production, but clearly very close. The stein is in excellent shape – a very rare condition for a ceramics piece over 300 years old. There are no cracks, hairlines, chips or repairs. There is a glaze burnt spot on the side – a manufacturing glitch, not later damage. Interesting to notice that the one from the Vogt catalog has almost the same. The lid is sitting pretty tight. The stein is 13 tall to the top of the thumblift, 2.5L capacity. I guarantee the authenticity. Condition: Excellent w/minor manufacturing glitch. Get Supersized Images & Free Image Hosting. Attention Sellers – Get Templates Image Hosting, Scheduling at Auctiva.

Antique Early German Westerwald Stoneware Beer Stein Walzenkrug c. Description: The beer steins made before 1800 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 -1700s, it is guaranteed old give or takes 10 years. It is made in a very traditional style of grey stoneware with cobalt-blue glaze. This is a very traditional beer drinking vessel – a type that was produced for over centuries, from the 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 the 18th century. The stein is quite elaborately etched all over the body with beautiful floral decorations. The decorations are etched into the clay with a sharp instrument. The stein is also glazed with cobalt-blue and magenta glazes, fired and saltglazed. The decorations are quite intricate and labor-intensive. This complicated decor is a sign of the early 1700s, it was not used in the late 1700s as too expensive. The lid is pewter with hollow ball ribbed thumblift – this type of thumblifts was used throughout the entire 1700s. It is marked with the marks proper for the early 1700s pewter marks – I was not able to identify the pewterer, but the city mark suggests it was made in the town of Demmin in the North Germany. The stein is in excellent condition – there are no chips or cracks, no repairs. This is a very rare condition for such an old piece. There is also no damage or repairs to the pewter apart from normal wear. The stein is 8.5 tall to the top of the thumblift, 1L capacity. I guarantee the authenticity. Height: 8.5 in.

Antique German Stoneware Saltglazed Beer – Stein King Gambrinus Regensburg Inlaid Lid c. Description: This type of very old German beer steins is traditionally called “Regensburg” type 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. 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 1870s. The relief decor on the front of the stein shows King Ga mbrinus – the legendary inventor of hopped malt beer. It was a very common subject for Regensburg steins – a massive figure of the King sitting on a beer barrel and saluting with a stein. The sides of the stein are decorated with hops vines. The lid is pewter with 5-ring closed-type hing and the thumblift sitting on the lid – all typical for the 1870s. There is a porcelain inlay in the lid with hand-painted words: “Zum Andenken” – “For the memory”. The stein is in excellent condition – a rare thing for a stein this old. There are no chips, cracks or repairs. There are some manufacturing impurities, but they all are part of the manual manufacturing process. Remember, the Regensburg steins of the 1860s – 1870s were not industrialized ware, there were made by hand in small shops. The manufacturing glitches only make these pieces even more interesting. Large and impressive antique beer vessel with about 150 years of history behind it. It is 9.75 tall to the top of the thumblift, over 1L capacity. Height: 9.75 in.

Antique Early German Stoneware Beer Stein Birnkrug – Dreihausen c. Description: The beer steins made before 1850s are usually categorized as “early” – 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. It was made in the village of Dreihausen located in Hesse, in the very heart of Germany. It is also located near the historical stoneware production centers of Cologne and Siegburg that produced the first true stoneware in Europe. These brown-glazed “Birnkruge” or “pear-shaped steins” in German, along with many other household stoneware vessels, were produced in Dreihausen from the 13th century to the first half of 1800s. There were about 20 – 30 pottery shops in this small village at the peak of production in the mid-1700s. The Dreihausen stoneware was different from it’s Westerwald counterpart, – it was never salt-glazed. Instead the Dreihausen potters used to dip the already formed pieces into highly diluted loam slip of iron-rich clay that after firing formed this gorgeous shiny chocolate-brown surface. The stein is incised with the name “Rosina” on front – it was done when the clay was still wet before putting the slip. Apparently, it was done on a special order from a customer. The lid is pewter, with the thumblift in form of a sitting young boy – Cupid or Putto – holding a beer stein in his hand. The figural thumblifts appeared in German beer stein production around 1820. However, this is a unique and a very unusual thumblift. I’d like to speculate that the stein was made on a special order as a gift to a lady (Rosina) who just gave birth to a boy. The stein is in excellent condition – there are a couple of very minor glaze flakes – just normal age-related wear, but no chips or cracks, the pewter is in excellent shape. The stein is 7.25 tall to the top of the thumblift, about 0.5L capacity. I guarantee the authenticity. Height: 7.25 in. Get Supersized Images & Free Image Hosting.
