Antique Unusual German Burl Wood Large Carved Beer Stein Bicycle Bike Sports c. The stein is carved in the form of a beer barrel. The lid is made of wood with a burl wood on the top as well as for the thumblift creating a beautiful object of art. Burls yield a very peculiar and highly figured wood, prized for its beauty and rarity. It is sought after by furniture makers, artists, and wood sculptors. The stein is dedicated to the sports of cycling with a figure of a bicyclist on top and the words "All Heil" carved in the body. These words were the motto of bicycle sports in old Germany.

It is very unusual and rare to have a bicycle theme beer stein made individually out of wood. I over 20 years of collecting and dealing, this is the first time I see such a stein. The stein is in excellent condition for the age - there is a short wood split in the lid, but there are no chips or cracks in the wood body, only some original wood flaws.

It was covered inside with some sort of natural coating, most likely based on cherry tar. This coating has worn and decayed with time.

The stein is quite large and impressive, standing 11 to the top of the cyclist's head, 0.5L capacity. Condition: Excellent w/short split in lid. Get Supersized Images & Free Image Hosting.
