Old San Francisco Cafe Zinkand Beer Steins German Antique R.hanke Mettlach Style For Sale

Old San Francisco Cafe Zinkand Beer Steins German Antique R.hanke Mettlach Style

Authentic Original Old Antique San Francisco Earthquake Relics
2 Cafe Zinkand Beer SteinsThe bottom of these steins is marked 'R.H. Germany' - This is the "Father of the Modern Beer Stein", Reinhold HankeThe steins were made as an advertising promotional souvenir for the famous Cafe Zinkand Restaurant in the late 19th century San Francisco by R.H. GermanyOne stein shows some damage, but not surprising since they were in the infamous 1906 San Francisco Earthquake
HISTORY: Cafe Zinkand was built in 1895; Speckles Bldg., Market Street. Charles Adam Zinkand arrived from Germany to New York, then moved to the "City by the Bay" in 1877. Cafe Zinkand changed hands and was rechristened the Tait-Zinkand in 1904. John Tait was a restauranteur who arrived in San Francisco and built numerous famous restaurants in the area. Legend has it that when the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 struck, Tait rushed downtown to check on the Zinkand. Relieved to find it intact, he opened the front door, only to find that the interior had collapsed and the facade was the only thing standing. The restaurant was quickly rebuilt but it's location was moved to a nearby spot. This stein predates all of this and is clearly from before 1900 when Charles Zinkand owned the establishment. Reinhold Hanke, you see, was the first to mass-produce the stoneware stein. His molding system, which was probably patterned on some of the glass-making techniques of his native Bohemia, allowed him to create a large number of stoneware steins from a single master mold. Thus, not only could a stein maker produce more steins, but the artist could justify spending more time on the artistic design. The "Golden Age of Beer Steins" was thus begun. Hanke made other pieces for Zinkands too. The pewter work of the lid is wonderful with an embossed logo of Charles Adam Zinkand's initials and "Cafe Zinkand, San Francisco" encircling it.
Again verifying the age of the stein as Pre-Tait ownership.
The body of one stein is free of cracks and damage, only marks from age;
some fading and age glaze crazing. Excellent shape for a great advertising antique piece from San Francisco. However,the second stein has some damage; a dent in the pewter lid
and a single hairline crack (looks like the stein was in the 1906 earthquake, but that may not be the case).
Each Stein holds 4/10 of a liter of beer and weighs approximately 2 poundsPlease ask any questions
comes from a smoke free environment
