Antique German Faience Beer Stein Hanau Enghalskrug with Architecture c. Description: Presented is an early German beer stein made around the late 1790s. The stein was made in the factory of Hanau - one of the oldest faience factory in Germany. It was painted by one of the factory decorators who created a very simple but beautiful blue with a small town view, showing houses, a church, and trees. The steins of this shape with a long neck - are called in Germany "Enghalskrug" - "narrow neck stein".
Nice pewter lid with pewterer's mark on the inside - I was unable to identify it. The mark is dated "1760" - this is usually the date the pewter factory was established. The scalloped form thumblift was often used by Hanau pewterers in the 1700s. The stein has a factory mark "M" on the bottom - this is one of the known marks the Hanau factory was using.Beautiful piece of beer drinking culture over 200 years old. There is no cracks or chips, just some age-related glaze crazing and glaze loss (see pics). This is a good condition for a faience item this old. This is a smaller stein - it is 7.5 tall to the top of the thumblift, 0.3L capacity. Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing.
