An antique porcelain and pewter German character beer stein in the form of a robust nun wearing a full black habit. There is a lithophane in the bottom of this stein. Please see my 7th and 8th photos. Measures approximately 6 and 3/4 inches high and 4 inches wide, not including the pewter handle. Weighs approximately 1 pound and 10.8 ounces.
CONDITION: No chips or cracks. The pewter is naturally patinated and unbent.I believe the black is a cold paint and it shows some small spots/areas of loss (mostly on the left and right sides of the nun's tunic and the top of her veil) where the white porcelain shows through. Please see my last three photos. Her face is in excellent condition.
There are some flecks of kiln debris in the interior of the stein, including two bits in the surface of the lithophane. Thanks so very much for stopping by!
