This is a .5 liter relief pottery stein made in Germany by J W Remy around 1910. 11 1/2" to the top of the pewter steeple lid which is firmly attached to the handle through a thick 3 ring hinge. It only holds .5 L because of a 2" false bottom. Stein is listed in the Beer Stein Library in the J W Remy catalog mold # 1196, which is where I got the translation http://www.beerstein.net/item.asp?ItemNum=jwr-1196"Sieh dich für. Schaum ist kein Bier."
(Beware. Foam is no beer.) Which is pretty funny considering there is a false bottom. Excellent condition, no chips, cracks, or hairlines and cobalt blue background. Please let me know if you need any other photos or information. PayPal ships within 24hrs of receipt . Thanks for looking, Rich
