Antique German Blown Stone Cut Glass Beer Stein Traveling Man Thumblift c. 1890s
Antique German Blown and Stone Cut Glass Beer Stein with Traveling Man Thumblift c. This beautiful and very elegant beer stein was made around 1880s - 1890s of blown glass with attached handle and glass inlaid pewter lid. It is made in a shape of a goblet with a short stem and wide foot and decorated with stone cut facets for great optical effect. The pewter lid is nice and ornate with the glass inlay also stone-cut to create diamod-like look. The thumblift is in a form of a travelling man with a backpack, a walking stick and a flask in his hand, very interesting and unusual. The stein is in excellent flawless condition. Please note - the glass beer steins are the ones that could be actually used for drinking - I wouldn't recommend drinking from antique stoneware or pewter, but antique glass cleans perfectly. The stein is standing 9 tall to the top of the thumblift, 0.25L capacity. Please also note - I have two more identical steins - part of a set I sell separately. If you are interested in matching pair or all three, please contact me so we can make a deal. Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing.
