Antique German Art Nouveau/Jugendstil Pewter Serving Beer Stein by J. Presented is a beautiful and very stylish beer stein designed in a very distinctive Jugendstil style - the German version of Art Nouveau. This style is very specific to Germany - it is characterized by simplistic and at the same time unusual linear forms.

This style was extremely popular at the time. It lasted only a decade or two, but changed the perception of design forever. The stein was made by the company J. In Munich - I was not able to identify the company but I guarantee the time period of 1910 - 1920. There is the presentation inscription engraved at the bottom: "ZUM 30 JAHR GEN PRAXIS JUBILAUM J".

It looks like the stein was presented to a doctor on his 30 years anniversary of practice. The stein is in a very good condition with some very minor dings unavoidable in the soft metal as pewter. It would require some cleaning but I will leave it to the new owner - some people prefer the antique look and patina for the pewter objects, some like to polish them to get a near silver impression it was inteneded to give at the time of manufacturing.

The stein is 8 tall to the top of the thumblift, 0.5L capacity. Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing.
