It is made of blown crystal glass with a round pedestal and a massive hand-applied handle. The stein is nicely painted with glass enamel - this was a technique that required some serious skills and created beautiful artwork. It shows the tools of farmer's trade - hayfork with a scythe and a rake.

The steins of this kind came mostly from Bohemia. The lid is of a steep type with the cone-shaped thumblift sitting on the lid and five-ring closed type hinge - also typical for this period.

The lid is engraved with initials M. The stein has a line on the back, where the bottom of the handle connects. It is quite stable and shows a wonderful appearance.

The stein is 9 tall to the top of the thumblift, 0.5L capacity. Condition: Line on back, otherwise excellent.
