Get Vendio Gallery - Now FREE! Antique Pewter German Beer Stein Walzenkrug Engraved Wedding Gift dated 1804. Description: This very interesting and impressive beer stein was made in Germany in early 1800s. It is a so-called "Walzenkrug" - a cylindrical form beer drinking vessel that was very popular in 1700s - early 1800s. The thumblift is a hollow ball - please note that the hollow balls for the thumblift is a very good sign of authencity.
They never made solid balls for the thumblift before 1830 - 1840 and there is no repros with hollow balls - I guess it is very hard to reproduce. The form of the base and the lid is usually associated with Saxonian pewter tradition.The stein is beautifully engraved in front and on the sides. The front is engraved with initials C. Please note - this is the actual date, the stein was made on or before this date. The inside of lid shows pewterer's mark. Unfortunately I do not have the reference material to identify it.
All I can tell - it is definitely Saxonian. The stein is in fair condition - it has some dings, dents and scrathches, especially on the back - I think someone removed a presentation inscription on the back long time ago. Still looking very good and impressive.
I guarantee my decription and dating - the stein is at least from 1804 - everything is original including the engraving. I have been collecting beer steins for many years and I can stand behind my words. The stein is 9 tall, 1L capacity.Title: Antique Pewter German Beer Stein Wlazenkrug Engraved dat.
