OKTOBERFEST ~ 1982
BEER STEIN / mug
SIGNED by Artist HEALY
NO CHIPS, CRACKS, REPAIRS
FOR THE COLLECTOR OF THE DAYTON ART INSTITUTE OKTOBERFEST BEER STEINS...
OR FOR THE COLLECTOR OF UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL STEINS IN GENERAL...
THESE ARE VIRTUALLY ONE OF A KIND, AS THEY ARE, EACH AND EVERY ONE, HAND MADE; tfore, SIMPLY BY DEFINITION, NO TWO ARE IDENTICAL.
(NOTE: During the early 80s, I lived on Grand Avenue, so the DAI's Oktoberfest literally was in my backyard....I had to go! What a blast! Amazing food, amazing artists and their amazing art....and the always amazing DAI beer stein...which I had to have!
I am listing five from the early 80s....and I live close enough to Dayton that, if somebody is interested in all of them, I will glady meet you someplace to hand-deliver, saving you shipping $$...and it would give me a great excuse to visit the Dayton Art Institute and possibly have dinner at the wonderful Thai restaurant in the Oregon District...or maybe The Pine Club.) :o)
This seems to be relatively difficult to find. I wonder how many of these have been broken, chipped...anyway, what a perfectly perfect, great, and unexpected gift for the lover of the DAI Oktoberfest and the collector of the handmade steins!
