Vintage Thewalt German Beer Stein~ 107 Reuge Swiss Musical Movement The premier of German stoneware beer steins from Thewalt . This type of stein is made only in a small area in the wooded hills of the Westerwald, not far from Coblenz on the Rhine, in Western Germany . This region is known as "Kannenbackerland" or Jug Bakers Land . The Coblenz and Hohr-Grenzhausen area is the leader in stoneware stein production. An 11-inch high beer stein made in Germany of stoneware, raised-relief & hand painted scenic body featuring figures in traditional costume with landscaped background. The footed base is highly detailed in raised-relief design as well featuring angelic looking characters blowing on horns. The large handle is designed with a carved-wood-like pattern and on the handle is written " Western Germany ." Under the top of the handle are the numbers 107". The solid pewter conical shaped lid attaches at the handle's highest area. The pewter lid is ornately decorated in relief design and fits snug upon the stoneware surface. The musical movement is Swiss and from the finest... Reuge . Reuge was established in 1865 by Charles Reuge. Today the company remains the top manufacturer of luxury music boxes and selected musical items. The stein plays the musical tune "Somewhere my Love” from the Sound of Music ." In banner format, the words "Da such ich meine Freude!" appear on one side of the stein; on the opposite side "Im Wald und auf der Haide." This is my attempt at translating the words and not a complete translation at that. The stein is in excellent vintage condition with a small chip and 2 small cracks on the base. These do not take away from the beauty of the piece. Check the pictures. The painted scene is superb. The music is lovely to listen to.
