We are delighted to offer this rare vintage hand painted beer stein which honors Gambrinus, the legendary king of beer; resting on a keg, lifting his chalice and offering a toast. An impressive solid pewter crown figurine sits atop a relief pewter lid. The front panel is framed by stone columns and the sides feature depictions of hops. A hop & leaf border encircles the top and bottom of the stein with a lion and beer mug border below. A poem saluting Gambrinus appears on the right and left panel in German.I made malt out of barley and was first to create beer. That is why the Brewers can proudly claim, it was a King who invented the Beer. It measures approximately 11.8 high x 5 diameter and is in very good gently used condition with a scratch on the rim of the lid. This can be observed in photo #10.
We appreciate your careful review of the photos as they tell so much more than we can articulate; and ask that you zoom in for a closer look at any and all condition issues. As always, we thank you for taking a moment to consider this piece.
