Antique Mettlach Villeroy and Boch Beer Stein Etched Cupid sign. C Warth #1396 c. Description: This absolutely fantastic pouring stein was made by Villeroy and Boch in Mettlach in 1890. It is made in etched technique creating a wonderful effect. The design of the stein was created by Christian Warth – the most prominent Mettlach artist whose style is easily recognizable and whose signature is very well known to the Mettlach collectors. The stein portraits a Cupid or Putto – a traditional Renaissance cubby child character – drinking from a large serving beer stein. The side pictures feature a plate with herring (a traditional German beer snack), and a cat – in old German drinking culture the symbol of the hangover. The stein is fully marked on the bottom with impressed Mettlach tower mark, mold number 1396 and “90” for the date of manufacturing 1890. The lid is a special order lid made of silverplated pressed metal. The silverplate is largely worn out. Apart from the plate wear on the lid, the stein is in perfect condition there is no chips, crack or repairs. It is large and impressive, 8.5 tall, 0.5 L capacity. Condition: Excellent w/some plate wear on lid. Height: 8.5 in. Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing. Track Page Views With. Auctiva’s FREE Counter.
