Antique German Copper Hand-hammered Beer Stein Pitcher Nuremberg c. Description: This very interesting copper beer stein/pitcher was made in Germany around mid- 1700s. Judging by the shape and technique it was made in the South of Germany - most likely in Nuremberg that was the center of copper manufacturing in late 1700s - early 1800s. The stein is made of copper - hand-hammered and tin-covered on the inside. The handle is manualy attached to the body using rivets - this technique was used pre-industrial copper vessels production of 1700s into early 1 800s.The lid is attached to the handle with a hinge and topped with a brass finial. I have included a scan from the late Johannes Vogt catalogs with a very similar stein. The stein/pitcher is 8 tall and the capacity is approximately 1L. It is in a very good condition for the age - there are some minor dings and scratches, some tin patching as well - the normal age-wear, but no damage or leaking. I guarantee my dating and description.
Condition: Very good w/some wear and patching. Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing.
