Based on the markings on the bottom of this stoneware stein, we believe that it dates between 1886 - 1897. However, based on the style of the hinge and thumb lift, we may actually be able to narrow the production period down further to between 1895 - 1897. We are NOT experts, nor will be ever claim to be.We just do our homework and try to share the knowledge we obtain during our research with our potential buyers. We feel that this piece is in very good condition, with the exception of a chip on the bottom edge, directly under the handle. The pewter lid has some wear along the edges, but is otherwise complete. However, the lid definitely needs a little TLC, as there is some sort of build up in the grooves of the detailed design. My guess is that it may have been kept near a stove or a deep fryer, as the substance scrapes off, almost like old fryer grease, but it does not feel greasy to the touch.
Please note that this does not hinder the movement of the hinge. The inside of the stein is very clean, but does have some crazing, consistent with age. The white mark seen in the photos on the handle was paint and scraped right off. The conical shaped lid is made of pewter and has a detailed relief surrounding the diameter.
This delicate relief of cherubs, small flowers and what appear to be horns and scrolls is nicely complemented by the griffin thumb lift. The griffin appears to be holding a fish or dolphin. The colorful scene on the body of the stein depicts a drunken Jester on a barrel. He is surrounded by various animals and even has a monkey pouring him beer. While I have seen this stein in darker colors, I would consider this to have more of a pastel color scheme.
No, it is not faded. My research shows that it was produced with both color schematics. The inscription on the body reads.Wer zuviel trinkt, der ist ein Narr. Wers trinken hasst, noch mehr fürwahr!
He who drinks too much is a fool. He who hates to drink is yet a bigger one!Stein capacity is 1/2 L. Measures approximately 6.5" to top of stein w/o lid, and approximately 9.5" to the top of the finial.
Top of stein is approximately 3" in diameter and the base is just over 4" in diameter. The chip is approximately 1/2" x 1/2" (when measuring the widest area across and up/down).
