German pewter, transfer & hand painted, 1/2L, pewter lid. The text on the body reads: " montags ist mein geschäft geschlossen ". And translates to: "On Monday my shop is closed".Name engraved on shield is "Jakob Brunner" and though this is obviously a late 19th or turn of the 20th century piece, there is a date of 1712. Description & Condition: This fine Shoemaker occupational stein depicts a normal day at the shop - original owner's name Jakob Brunner. The stein itself is a bit different in that there is an open window and the shoemaker is plying his craft for all to see - it is done in a way that the shoemaker is basically 3d and sitting on this recessed window that actually occupies space in the steins interior. Also of note, there are two interesting marks on the handle, the 3 ball feet have winged cherub heads and there is a medallion(almost looks like a plaster medallion you would see in very old homes) at the bottom of the stein. The only condition issues worth mentioning are some very minor dings/dents.
Height: 11.2 tall from base to top of thumblift. Width: 4.6 at the base of stein's body. The pictures do the talking...Let me know if you have any questions and thank you for looking.
