Franz Ringer Design Beer Stein, Bierkrug

This delightful beerstein carries a hand decorated design of embracing lovers by Franz Ringer. The couple are surrounded by a garland of flowers, a foaming container of beer and party streamers. They appear to be celebrating something pretty important, perhaps this was given as a gift to the happy couple at a wedding or an engagement.The Franz Ringer monogram is clearly shown on photos and the base has various numerals impressed and painted.I think the inscription means something like: "May the jug you own be always raised in luck and joy" (German speakers may laugh but its the best that I can do). The stein itself is in perfect condition, with no chips or cracks, the pewter lid has the initials CP engraved on it, has a few small dents and is a bit loose at the joint but is perfectly secure. This is one of a number of jugendstil steins and jugs that I shall be listing over the next few weeks.
