Up for sale is a high quality antique lidded German pottery beer stein made in the first quarter of the 19th century. It's sculpted out of thick pottery walls and has a glazed off-white finish that has developed a lovely crackling finish over time. The stein has a nice hinged handle which is mounted with a hinged pewter lid along with a large thumb-piece. The lid is engraved by hand with elaborate initials and it has acquired a nice patina from age.
This 1 liter stein is in good condition and measures 9 3/4 inches tall by 6 3/4 inches long. There is a small edge chip on the bottom as shown in last photo.
