OLD WILTON COLD BEER STEIN TANKARD RWP PEWTER ARMETALE
- Source: eBay
's an old Wilton Columbia PA beer stein I found at an estate sale. Armetale brand products impart the warmth & patina of fine pewter, but are actually made of an aluminum based alloy, fused with 9 other metals. Chilling the stein prior to use results in keeping your beer cold, cold, colder still.Standing 5 inches tall with a base of 4 1/4 inches, this handsome stein was cast in sand, no 2 steins are alike, assuring complete individuality. Note teh deep polished finish, the color, the undulations on all the surfaces. Armetale metal is designed to last, to be used and enjoyed! A useful antique that will only increase in value! The Wilton Armetale stamp ( RWP within a circle with the W larger than the R & P) is on the top side of the stein as well as on the bottom which also says WILTON COLUMBIA PA. This proves the stein was made before 1969 when the company moved to Mt. Joy, PA. Tfore, this is the real McCoy: not an imitation!!! Weighing 1 pound, 4.4 ounces, this sturdy tankard will be a classic addition to any collection, or just the perfect vessel from which to enjoy your favorite cold brew! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to see more pics. Happy Bidding!!
