Early Faience Beer Stein Thuringen Factory with Bull Design c. Description: Presented is a very impressive and beautiful old German beer stein manufactured in the region of Thuringia - an old German state located in central Germany - around mid-1700s. Made of faience with very colorful hand-painted decorations that traditionally are associated with Tueringen factories. The decorations consist of a front medallion showing a bull and side decorations showing a floral decor painted in green, yellow, orange, magenta and blue. The bull picture could mean the owner was involved in bull raising or meat occupation. Nice pewter lid with a large hollow ball for the thumblift and a lip ring. There is also nice ornate strap support.

The lid is engraved initials N. The strap on the handle was added to repair the handle about the time the stein was made. The stein is in very good condition for the age.

There is a hairline on the back that was professionally repaired on the outside - perfect not noticeable job. There is another short line on the bottom that is contained. The handle strap gives the handle good strength and is also quite decorative. The lid is in perfect order. It is marked with the pewterer's mark. The mark is almost illegible.

These are great conditions for a beer stein that is about 2 5 0 years old. It is standing 9.5 tall to the top of the thumblift, 1L capacity. I guarantee my description and dating.
