Antique Faience Beer Stein Birnkrug Schrezheim Factory Floral Decor c. Description: Presented is an early German beer stein made around the late 1700s. The stein was made in the factory of Schrezheim - one of the largest faience factories in Germany. The stein is made from traditional Schrezheim clay and glazed with a beautiful distinctive Schrezheim blue tin glaze.

It was made in a shape of Birnkrug or "pear-shaped stein". It was then painted by one of the factory decorators who created a beautiful magenta and yellow stylized floral decorations. This swiveling floral motifs were popular in the 1700s - early 1800s even with the stoneware steins.

Schrezheim was very famous in the late 1700s to early 1800s for it's faience work and also for the best quality pewter lids. It was the longest-lasting factory - most of the faience production factories were shut in the early 1800s due to the competition from emerging stoneware industrialized production and cheaper glass production. But the Schrezheim factory lasted well into the late 1850s - early 1860s. The pewter lid has the hollow ball thumblift and five-ring closed style hinge - the typical setup for the late 1700s. The stein is in excellent condition for the faience piece this old.

There is no cracks or chips - it's quite rare for faience. There is a very small glaze flake on the upper rim see my open lid pic. The lid is in perfect shape and sitting tight.

It is 8 tall to the top of the thumblift, 0.5 L capacity. I guarantee my description and dating!
