Parian ware was utilized mainly for busts and figurines, and occasionally for dishes and small vases. The main advantage of Parian ware was that it could be molded as regular porcelain but then carved like marble to create very precise detailing.It was still too expensive for mass production so it became quite rare after 1870s. Th e stein is in excellent condition. There is some wear and scratching consistent with minimal age-re lated wear, but no chips, lines or repairs. The figurine on top has no flaws.
Please note - despite the shaft showing on the side of the hinge, it is still closed type - the shaft is not moving when you move the lid. These closed type large five-ring hinges are a perfect sign of pre-1870s production..
