Late Renaissance Blown and Enameled Glass Stein Reproductions.

PLEASE NOTE:

I DO NOT DO VALUE ($$$’s) APPRAISALS! There are way too many variables: condition, location, time of year, present trends in stein collecting, local (and now national) economics; but most of all = prior expectations by the owner, are among the reasons!

I have for over a year now placed these short “notifications” at the bottom of each page! It is now obvious to me the general public never gets that far before wanting to ask me a question on beer stein dollar values. So I have had to move them forward as I am getting tired of copying them and sending them back to people as an answer to their “stein value” questions. This was meant to be an informational web site only.

NOR WILL I KNOWINGLY DO ASSESSMENTS for the future selling of steins on auction sites such as eBay, etc. Go to the web site for “Stein Collector’s International” and click on “Stein Talk,” someone there might help you. I just do not have the time! My web site was really started as an informational site for beginning beer stein collectors that would be looking for the info and not the general public. This site has its own search engine [top right on each page!] SO if one puts in “Wood Steins” or “Hand painted steins,” it will give one a list of all the pages that has that subject matter within it.

For some time, I had the first two of these steins listed on one of the pages of: “Not your average drinking vessel….” at the beginning of these web site pages.

But as I acquired a couple of more photos and as most on those in the compendium were of single photos, I decided to make another new brief page depicting these hard to acquire glass  steins. All of these were German made and are circa 1870-85.

.5 liter. Dated 1559, [TSACO]

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

.5 liter. No date shown.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Not sized marked,  but about a 1/3rd liter. Dated “Anno 1648” [FWTD]

.5 liter blown glass, with enameled verse having  alternating  colored letters. This is not a Theresienthal piece. [FWTD] Dated 1695. A clearer photo coming soon= ?  These steins might be rated a 5 (Uncommon) on the Smith – Paratore rarity scale.

These above are called Renaissance “historismus” glass steins. Most all of these are dated in the late 1500’s to early 1600’s, but all were made in the 1870-early 90’s.

But the new collector needs to be very careful out there. A collector friend of mine found an original one from the 1600’s in a local New England auction a few years back for less than $200.00! Photo of it is just below ▼. It has no date on it! But is Circa 1570=1620.

Notice the larger spiral pewter finial on the original. [David Harr)

Here are a couple more photos of other real renaissance glass steins. Both photos were taken at “Corning” = The Corning Museum of Glass,  in, where else but: Corning, NY, the ‘Mecca’ of glass stein collectors.
