Item Details

  • Height:
    11 3/4 Inches
  • Period:
    19th Century
  • Origin:
The body of this incredible 1-liter Mettlach stein is emblazoned with a dramatic crest, which almost certainly belongs to the royal House of Hohenzollern, the Prussian Royal family. Crafted by the Villeroy & Boch firm, this stein's outstanding, hand-painted design extends to the pottery insert in the pewter lid. This fine example also retains its original thumblift, which echoes the Hohenzollern crest, a quality that makes this stein very desirable.

This stein bears all of the proper incised marks used between the years 1883 to 1931 under the base. The Mettlach "abbey" incised mark with "METTLACH" and the initials V&B indicate the Mettlach factory Villeroy & Boch as the maker; the incised mark "GEGEN NACHBILDUNG GESCHÜTZT" denotes that the pattern is right protected, the Roman numeral I is the 1-liter capacity code and "2204" indicates the form number and "98" on the lower right is the date mark for 1898.

Dated 1898

11 3/4" high
