Steins have been used by beer and ale drinkers for over 500 years.They have been made of ivory, porcelain,pottery, stoneware, faience, silver, pewter, wood, or glass in sizes up to nine gallons.
Although some were made by Mettlach, Meissen, Capo-di-Monte, and other famous factories, most were made by less important German potteries. Antique beer steins, mugs and tankards are prized for their craftsmanship and colorful ornamentation and scenes. from Germany in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, especially from the city of Mettlach, whose potteries produced thousands of the vessels.They can be found in many styles and materials, including copper, pewter, silver, pottery, ivory, porcelain, glass and wood. The beer stein had its origins in the mid-1500's along the Rhine river in Germany, when small towns began producing functional drinking vessels decorated by enameling and glazing.Each town or area adding their own flair or nuance.By the 1860s, factories around Westerwald and Dresden began producing ornamental steins for display, and continued doing so until WW1, from which the industry never fully recovered.Lately there's been renewed interest in collecting beer steins with unique designs, including reproductions of works by famous artists.
Designs reflect everything from historical battles to comical faces and even car racing and baseball.

Some time ago,in fact, it was the year 1970 that I became interested in Antiques,so much so that I wanted to study them.
I began my research into the art of Ceramics and soon realised there was much to learn about this particular subject so I decided to enrol into the evening classes where Henry Sandon “Antiques Roadshow” was lecturing about Ceramics from the 12th to the 20th Centuries.
This began for me as a hobby but I will come back to this subject at a later date, because todays post is about Pewter Tankards. Yes that looks better you may think,but now try a couple of pewter tankards and you will see what I mean. If champagne should always be drunk from a silver tankard,then beer should be drunk from a pewter one,ideally with a glass bottom,so you can see if any enemy comes through the door while you are drinking; We are talking about past days of course.
