Early Stoneware Beer Stein Raeren Pinte c.1500

Description: I will be posting this week several very early German beer steins.  They date back to 1500s - 1600s and were made in the "Rhineland" - the region in Germany by the river Rhine where traditionally the early stoneware production took place. The most important towns to prduce the stoneware were Cologne, Siegbuerg, Frechen and Raeren.

This simple but very elegant beer stein is very old. It dates back to late-1500s and was made in the town of Raeren - one of the most important centers of early stoneware production in Germany. This stein is called Raerener Pinte.

It is made of light brown stoneware with no decorations. There are a few chips to it and but no restorations - the stein is exactly like it was 500 years ago! The line you see on front picture is not a crack - it's a surface scratch. The Pinte is a little squeezed - a production flaw - that most likely did not prevent it from being used.

This is a beautiful piece with several centuries behind it! I guarantee my description and my dating. Please note - I have included a picture from German beer stein auction catalog with similar piece. The stein is 4 1/4" tall, approx. 0.3L capacity.

Condition: Small chips, - no repairs Year: late-1500s
Country: Germany
Height: 4 1/4 in
