This style with the cream background and gilt highlights was generally from the 1890's. The stein measures 15 3/4 tall to the top of the pewter lid. There is some slight gilt wear and loss, but no other damage.
There are no chips, cracks, hairlines or pewter damage. For anyone collecting German beer steins or interested in German steins, I would highly recommend joining SCI, as you will receive publications and can communicate with members from all over the world about steins.
There are also past publications online, where you can research steins through a number of scholarly articles.
