The stein is very nicely decorated with white, gold, green and orange enamel. The front of the stein shows a grain shovel, a scythe, a flail and two sicles - all the tools of a grain harvesting.The stein was dedicated to the farmer's trade - it belongs to the so-called "occupational" category of beer steins and was made for a farmer proud of his trade. The lid also have five-ring closed type hinge, typical for the period, and the thumblift sitting on the lid. The stein is in excellent condition - there is some minor age-related minor wear on the enamel, mostly on the sides, other than that there is no chips, lines or repairs. It is very impressive and stylish, standing 9.5 tall to the top of the thumblift, 1L capacity. Condition: Excellent w/ some wear on enamel.
