Midwest Estate Buyers is pleased to offer for your consideration an antique Meissen porcelain beer stein.

This stein is an amazing find! It appears to be a very early Meissen creation, and is a lovely scene done in high relief. The fine porcelain is hand painted with a score of cheerful people surrounded by grape vines. The stein is complete with a porcelain-inlay lid crowned with a strawberry in relief. The lid is made of metal that we think is brass, but cannot be 100% certain.

This 1L stein measures 8" tall and 4.5" in diameter at the base, and is in great antique condition! The lid is a bit loose and wiggles back and forth a tad, but t is almost no paint wear, and no evidence of cracks, chips, or repairs.

We do not offer buy it now's on our auction's. In order to be fair to our bidders we will not end our auctions early so please do not ask!

Due to the size and delicate nature of many of our antiques such as this one, we are unable to offer flat-rate shipping. Please see the shipping calculator for an estimate to your specific location. Thank you!
