This listing is for a Vintage Ceramic BEER STEIN That was made in GERMANY and it has a Playing Card Design.
This item is Quite Large (about 16" tall!) and is marked 2L (which I believe means it is a 2 LITER Stein!
This item was purchased from an estate.
MATERIAL: Ceramic, White Base metal (Pewter?)
SIGNED: Marked on the bottom GERMANY 1633 and a small number 12.
DIMENSIONS: this item measures about 16" tall from the bottom of the stein to the top of the finial on the lid.
The base measures about 4 7/8" in diameter.
CONDITION: The Ceramic has some crazing and Crackleur in the glaze -see images.
There is a chip on the edge of the rim toward the handle side of the stein -see images.
The bottom section also has some shallow dings, chips in the ceramic -see images.
The metal lid has dings, dimples, nicks, scratches/scuffs, wear and imperfections in areas.
The lid is mounted with a metal band that surrounds the top of the handle, and the underside of the metal where it is mounted shows some brighter solder in that area....--possibly reinforced? -see close images.
The finial on the lid is a bit crooked -see images.
In my research, I find a different lid on steins with this playing card design -so I am not sure if this lid is original, or perhaps a later replacement?
Please see images to get a closer look at this items condition.
