Vintage 48oz Wooden Beer Tankard Stein W Hand Inlaid Eagle 12"h X 5.5"diam:
Up for sale is this Vintage 48oz Wooden Beer Tankard or Stein w Hand Inlaid American Eagle. This cross-collectible wooden tankard measure approx 12"H x 5 1/2"Diam base w lid closed, & weighs around 3 1/2 lbs alone. This large pre-owned tankard also measures about 9"across from the brass tips edge to the other side of the steins rim.
The history & origin of this piece is unknown w no recognizable markings. However, the craftsmanship of the inlaid American eagle & it's surrounding oval shape look fantastic, like it was a 1 piece oval (badge) w opposite running grain, that was a side project from the tankard. It's quite possible that the tankard was originally a manufactured piece w top & bottom inlaid borders only. Then at some later date, a highly skilled person added the inlaid eagle badge, very similar to trench art. The eagle figure itself was all hand inlaid and when complete, the badge was fitted on the tankard like a puzzle piece. One can actually feel the raised edge of this oval w their finger. The overall condition is very good w no real damage, only a small scuff/scrape here or there (see photos). The brass hardware is all intact, but is showing some oxidation. The item will ship to anywhere in the US in a 17x10x8 box weighing over 6 lbs w all contents. Global shipping is also available to anyone outside the US at an additional cost.
