Antique Unusual German Pewter Beer Stein w/Engraved Portrait c. Description: This beautiful antique German beer stein was made of pewter around 1890s - early 1900s. It is a typical traditional German pewtyer stein by form and style. It is, however, quite unusual - it is decorated with intricate, highly detailed and skilful hand carved engraving presenting a gentleman's portrait enframed with engraved highly decorative ornaments.

I have never seen anything like this - an apparently owner's portrait made with such skills and effort on a pewter beer stein. The lid is engraved with some very decorative initials and it looks like it was made by a different hand.

The stein is in excellent condition with very minor wear and scratching. It is 7 tall to the top of the thumblift, 0.3L capacity. Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing.
