Vintage Mettlach Knight Castle Beer Stein German Villeroy Boch 2580 For SaleVintage Mettlach Knight Castle Beer Stein German Villeroy Boch 2580
You are offerding on a Vintage Mettlach Knight Castle Beer Stein German Villeroy Boch 2580. The stein is in good condition, hoever there is one small chip on the handle and a small hair line crack right next to the chip. That hairline crack is no very noticable unless you are staring right at it. There is also another crack on the inside of the stein as shown in the pictures. This mint stein was manufactured in 1901 as evidenced by the incised 01 on the bottom. The identifying mold number is 2580. It was designed by Heinrich Schlitt a prolific designer for Villeroy and Boch. His name is located on the lower right hand part of the stein. Schlitt's role as one of the principal artists for the ceramics firm of Villeroy and Boch in Mettlach is well-known to collectors of antique drinking vessels. The Schlitt paintings which adorn the walls of the Rathskeller in the Munich town hall are recognized by his admirers to be among his finest.The history behind this stein as colorful as the stein itself. This 2580 stein has a varied group of characters, a jester, a knight, a damsel, a courier with a trumpet and a sodden knight peering into his stein. The backdrop for this magical scene is a large Medieval castle which is continued up into the conical tiled lid. Loosely translated Die Kannenburg means "a meeting place where political ideas were exchanged." The pewter work is typical Mettlach quality with a knight watchman blowing his horn. The handle is the face of a lion holding a shield in his mouth. Buyer to pay shipping and handling charges
