This beautiful Mettlach Vileroy & Bach beer stein / pitcher depicts a woman harvesting grapes. The stein features a beautiful woman in a striped skirt and head scarf. She is choosing just the right grapes from the vines for her vintage. The side panels are decorated with grape vines, leaves and grapes.The colors of the stein are harvest brown, greens, golds, and blues. According to my research some of these steins came with an inlay lid and some with no lid. Marked on the bottom with the Mettlach hallmark. Also other markings - see photos. Substantial and heavy - about 3 pounds 15 ounces.
CONDITION: used but good condition for age and use. Appears to be some discolored spots inside. On edge of top near spout seems to be a fine line mark/crack - but it's smooth if you run your finger over it - see last picture. May be some wear to color on girl's arm lifted high - underarm black line not consistent color. No chips on the bottom but brown paint that goes over from front to back has occasional minor bumps.
