Antique German Porcelain Beer Stein Occupational Baker w/Lithophane c. Description: This beer stein belongs to the "occupational" family of German beer vessels. It was made for a baker who was very proud of his occupation. The steins of this sort were quite expensive at the time and could be compared with regimental or Reservisten family of collectible antique beer steins. The stein was made in 1907 of hard porcelain with enameled art and ornate pewter lid. It is decorated with a scene of a bakery work. Please note - this is the actual date and the proud baker lived in Landau, Germany. His name was Christian Sieb, as indicated at the top of the stein. The stein has a lithophane - a picture in the bottom that you can only see through light - showing a soldier saying farewell to his sweetheart. Please keep in mind that occupational and regimental steins were often made of the same porcelain bodies! Great heavy cast pewter lid with the thumblift in a form of a rampant lion holding a shield. The stein is in excellent condition for the age - here is some very minor paint wear and a tiny nick on the lid. There are no chips, cracks or even usual lithophane crazing. The stein is 9.5 tall to the top of the finial, 0.5L capacity. Condition: Excellent with some age-related wear.
