19th C staved / inlaid wood & pewter beer stein with painted enamel lid * For Sale
19th C staved / inlaid wood & pewter beer stein with painted enamel lid *: $175.00
Frankly, I\'m not sure where to begin in trying to describe this absolutely unique beer stein so I\'ll begin with the simplest matters: She\'s 100% original, stands 6 1/2\" high (5 1/4\" to the rim) x 4\" diameter at the base and the metal is pewter. The absolute uniqueness of this piece is in the construction of the body of the stein ... 25 carefully hand carved, fitted and shaped \"staves, not counting the thin inlay work separating and a part of each \"stave\". All I can say here is please look at the pictures. There is some shrinkage to the wood so I wouldn\'t plan on drinking much beer from this. Domestic USPS priority mail shipping will run $15.
