Antique Early German Faience Beer Stein Bayreuth Factory Bird Motif Signed BK c. Description: Presented is a very impressive and beautiful old German beer stein manufactured in the town of Bayreuth in northern Bavaria, Germany, on the Red Main river in a valley between the Franconian Jura and the Fichtelgebirge Mountains. Made of faience in bulbous form called “Birnkrug” (pear-shaped) in Germany, with hand-painted cobalt-blue decorations. It shows floral motifs with a bird as a main subject – nicely done in some kind of primitive but stylish, traditional 18th-century style. Birds were quite popular as a subject matter for faience stein in the 18th century, and Bayreuth factory used it more often then other manufacturers. Nice pewter lid with a hollow ball thumblift. This type of thumblifts was popular in the 1700s. The type of decoration and the shape of the lid and the thumblift suggest the stein was made in the first half of the 1700s. The stein is signed on the bottom with the factory mark – “BK” – this mark was in use from 1728 to 1744. “B” is for Bayreuth, “K” is for Knoller – the factory owner at the time. The mark underneath BK is the artist decorator’s mark. The other inscription on the bottom are later notes. The stein is in great condition for the ceramics item that old. There are minor flakes on the upper rim and some glaze wear on the inside. There are no chips or cracks – a rare thing for a faience piece that old. A large and impressive antique vessel standing 10.5 tall to the top of the thumblift, about 1.5L capacity. Year: 1728 – 1744. Height: 10.5 in. Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing.

Antique Early German Stoneware Beer Stein Rhineland Raeren Kugelbauch c. Description: I will be posting this week several very early German beer steins They date back to 1500s – 1600s and were made in the “Rhineland” – the region in Germany by the river Rhine where traditionally the early stoneware production took place. The most important towns to produce the stoneware were Cologne, Siegburg, Frechen and Raeren. This simple but very elegant beer stein is very old. It dates back to mid-1600s and was made in the town of Raeren – one of the most important centers of early stoneware production in Germany. This stein is made in the shape of ball – a so-called “Kugelbauchkrug” – a very traditional Rhineland shape. To quote the book “Early Stoneware Steins” by Les Paul: The pottery craft in Raeren area has a long tradition going back to the 12th century. Salt glaze was used at the beginning of 16th century. In 1550/60, Raeren’s golden age began. Some of the potters who had been driven out of Cologne settled here. Raerene was able to compete with other Rhenish pottery, and at the end of the 16th century, Raeren even assumed first place in Rhenish stoneware production. Raeren products were exported all over the world, as finds in shipwrecks off the coasts of Western Australia, in Southeast Asia, in Estonia in Eastern Europe and North America. But the main markets were in Flanders and Holland, where Raeren stoneware was used in everyday life. Evidence of it is seen in numerous depictions on Flemish and Dutch paintings from 15th to the 17th centuries. Please look at my photos – I found exactly the same stein on a Dutch painting from 1600s. It is made of gray saltglazed stoneware with no decorations and this specific attractive brown glaze that was made on a gray stoneware with a slip of clay rich in iron – a very characteristic Raeren feature (the same technique was used in Frechen but their glaze is slightly different). The stein is in fantastic for the age condition – there are no larger chips, cracks or restorations. The upper rim is kind of rough but it is glazed so this is a manufacturing condition. There is a small chip on the bottom edge, but it is the only flaw – this condition is quite rare for the early Rhenish stoneware. It is 6.75 tall (17 cm), 0.5 L capacity. Condition: small chip on the bottom, otherwise excellent. Height: 6.75 in. Get images that make Supersized seem small. Track Page Views With.

Smaller Antique Early German Beer Stein Bartmann Bellarmine Style Frechen circa late 1500 – early 1600s. Description: I will be posting this week several very early German beer steins They date back to 1500s – 1600s and were made in the “Rhineland” – the region in Germany by the river Rhine where traditionally the early stoneware production took place. The most important towns to produce the stoneware were Cologne, Sieburg, Frechen and Raeren. This beer stein is one of the oldest beer drinking vessels. It dates back to the years of late 1500s – early 1600s and was made in the town of Frechen – one of the most important centers of early stoneware production in Germany. It is made in the tradition of “Bartmann” or “Bellarmine” beer steins of the same shape and color without the applied decorations. The bearded man steins from Frechen are the most classical of all the Bartmann pieces. They were produced for over a century and exported in large quantities to England, Scandinavia and the New World. It is estimated that between 1600 and 1640 approximately 10 million pieces were delivered to London and subsequently to all parts of the world. The stein is made of gray saltglazed stoneware with the applied slip of iron-rich clay that created this distinctive Frechen brown glaze – only in a very light tone. There is no applied or impressed decorations. The stein is in good condition for about 400 – 450 years old. It has a minor chip at the bottom and a small piece at the neck was reattached with plaster. The fact that plaster was used for a glue means it was reattached some long time ago. There is no other chips or cracks. This is a beautiful and very impressive piece that has about 400 years behind it! I guarantee my description and my dating. I have attached a photo of a very similar jug from the period painting of the mid 1500s. I have also attached a picture of a similar Frechen piece, only with applied Bartmann face and stamped decor. This is a smaller stein – about 6.5 tall, 0.3L capacity. Year: circa late -1500s – early 1600s. Height: 6.5 in. Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing. Track Page Views With.

Antique Early German Westerwald Stoneware Beer Stein Enghalskanne c. Description: The beer steins made before the 1800s are quite rare – at that time, before the industrial revolution, the production was all manual. Every stein made in the early period was unique, decorated by hand and rarely replicated. Presented is an excellent quality saltglazed stoneware beer stein from around the early 1700s. The stoneware produced in Germany, especially in the Westerwald region was technologically superior to all the ceramics in the world at this time (except, probably, porcelain). The stein is decorated with incised geometrical decor and cobalt-blue glaze. It has a ball-shaped body with a round base and long neck – this form is traditionally called “Enghalskanne” or “long neck pitcher”. Most of the stein made in 1600s – early 1700s has some applied decorations, but there were some with only the incised ones as well. The shape of the stein, the pewter and specifically the petrification of the stoneware – all points to the early 18th century production. The lid is pewter with scalloped thumblift – typical for the period of the late 1600s – early 1700s, and five-ring closed type hinge. The specific way the rings are set – they are thin with some larger gaps between – indicate the early 1700s as well. I have provided a picture of a very similar – almost identical – stein/pitcher from the late 1600s, taken from the late Johannes Vogt catalog. This one is a little later production, but clearly very close. The stein is in excellent shape – a very rare condition for a ceramics piece over 300 years old. There are no cracks, hairlines, chips or repairs. There is a glaze burnt spot on the side – a manufacturing glitch, not later damage. Interesting to notice that the one from the Vogt catalog has almost the same. The lid is sitting pretty tight. The stein is 13 tall to the top of the thumblift, 2.5L capacity. I guarantee the authenticity. Condition: Excellent w/minor manufacturing glitch. Get Supersized Images & Free Image Hosting. Attention Sellers – Get Templates Image Hosting, Scheduling at Auctiva.

Antique Early German Etched Glass Beer Stein withSwan Thumblift c. 1830s
Antique Early German Etched Glass Beer Stein Swan Thumblift circa 1830s. This beautiful stein was made in the 1830s, it is guaranteed old give ot take 10 years. It is made in a very traditional style of freehand blown glass with copper whell engraving and the pewter lid. The stein is decorated with etched drawings of stylized floral design. This type of decoration was produced with a small copper wheel. Cutting and engraving glass with lathe mounted copper wheels smeared with a grit paste is older than glass itself, originating in early Babylon or Egypt with cut gemstones. The belt driven lathe carries a range of interchangeable spindles, each carrying a copper wheel of varying width, diameter and profile, to suit the cut. A loose paste of emery or carborundum grit, oil and paraffin is applied to the turning copper wheel. The lid is pewter with the thumblift in form of swan spreading wings and lowering its neck, and 5-ring closed-type hinge. The animal/bird thumblifts were mostly used in the 1820s-1840s. I have a feeling that these swan or maybe it is heron? With lowering the neck is maybe connected with a loss of a person and comfoting gift. The lid is engraved with initials M. ” The lid is also stamped with the pewterer’s mark – “J. The stein is in excellent condition – a very rare occurence with the steins these old. There are no lines, no chips or any other damage to the body whatsoever. The lid is in good shape with no damage or repairs and is sitting pretty tight.

This beautiful stein was made in the late 1700s, around 1780s – 1790s, it is guaranteed old give or take 10 years. It is made in a very traditional style of gray stoneware with cobalt-blue glaze.

The production of saltglazed stoneware beer steins in the Westerwald region of Germany reached the highest quality by the mid-18th century. The center of the stein shows a very nice and intricate decor in the form of a rosette surrounded by hearts.

The stein is in a good shape – there is a very small chip on the upper edge see pic. Followed by a tight, almost invisible hairline. The chip is completely covered when the lid is closed. There are also some overfired glaze spots – this is normal for the saltglazed wares of the period. The lid is in excellent shape with some scratches but no damage or repairs to the pewter.
