Theresienthal [6] Glass servers, pokals, beakers, wine / punch bowls.

 

I believe this was the most decorated beer servers Theresienthal ever made. It sold for $998.00 in summer of 2012.

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

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.

SERVERS  – “MASTER  STEINS.”

This plain,  colored serving stein is about as inexpensive as Theresienthal could make them.

SOS - t-T-H server   WITH PRUNTS ON TROCARO 12-13

But – Just add a few prunts and a nice pewter base and it’s a  much different approach to selling than above.

 SOS - T-H SERVER DO I HAVE IT [Q] -2 use

 

 

AS above but with more prunts and a glass inserted lid. Both with a grotesque thumblift

 See:   http://www.steveonsteins.com/unusual-stein-thumblifts-1-3    for more examples of Grotesques

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

 

Just a bit better than the first one shown as far as decoration is concerned.  I think still impressive pieces just to pour beer from! [top] Pewter by G.Th.M.

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

Same server as above, on right. But with the gold leaf decoration added. It makes one hell of a difference  (in price too.[FWTD]    Below the detail:

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

Unusual design with an usual pedestaled  base, base with rounded edges (usually found on 1500-1600’s glass pieces.) Also see pedestaled server with crimped edge below. This one ▲also has a G.Th.M. grotesque thumblift as do examples #1 and #2.

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

A fairly inexpensive set with only white enameling and red first letters.

These could be ordered separately or as a large set. An unpainted version is shown at the beginning  of this page.

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

The finial is most likely ground down. A very common fault with these big guys. Compare with the next server below.But with a great thumblift.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Neither of these three .5 liter steins or beaker quite match the decor of the server above, but one can get an idea of just how impressive six of these sitting around a server would be.

POKALS  – (German for the English “Cup and Cover”) Note lots have lost their cover over time, but  they are still called pokals.

 A very nice T-H version of the trumpeter of Sackinggen

I think and not just because I own it, This is one of the nicest Pokals one could display . [FWTD]

POKAL  T-H IN NEW ENGLAND AUCTION 2-9  I DOID

 A fabulous glass pokal with  prunts, trails , and an enameled scene of the Kaiserin.this open bottom is seen on another smaller piece below.   [PHOTO SOURSE = UNRECALLED, SORRY] 

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

SOS - T-H   POKAL  MADE IN 1995 for DM 1,750

Pokal , new maDe in 1995;  cost then was DM 1,750.

I’m not 100% certain this is a Theresienthal piece as the eagle was done in a much different style than usually seen, but a lot of other  TH’s elements are present.

 Comment’s from the readers are welcome.

BEAKERS / FLUTES

Yet a third set (on this web site)  of miniature Munich Maid beakers (made for schnapps.) These complete sets, with boxes can be very expensive today. I believe the asking price  for this one  was over $500.00 in 2010.

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

Smaller beakers used for wine.

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

[L] Called a “worm beaker for obvious reasons, [FWTD] and mostly found with part of the very thin glass worm broken off. [R] A beaker [FWTD]showing a good example of  T-H’s  tan and cream colored enamels.

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

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Not  very common, especially without damage, these  “armorial worm beakers “can make an impressive display when six  or more are involved. [FWTD]

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

[L] Flutes with medieval figures, [R] A copy of a medieval beaker with large nipple prunts, to keep the glass from slipping out of one’s hands while eating.  (Napkins? Not invented  yet! )  Both of unknown size but I think the one on the right is sizeable like the one shown far above it.

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

A couple of pedestaled beakers.

Beakers [L] Medieval serving maid  [R] The  Heidelberg  castle

  

Extra large and well done “Humpen” (or lidless pokal) of an old German (not a Viking) warrior.

Probably “Hermann.” See Herman’s Story = http://www.steveonsteins.com/hermanns-story

PUNCH  / WINE BOWLS

Done in the form of  a large roemer, but there is a ladle hole in the lid.

Another roemer shaped wine / punch bowl, 18.5 inches tall!

Just a nice “punch”  / wine set!

Nicer ?

Nicest ??

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

Liking armorials, I am partial to this set by Theresienthal. Very nice enameled work.

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

DECANTERS / WINE JUGS

There are at least 25 different decanter designs and colors made in this series. While I have seen no advertisement or catalog I am almost 100%  positive the glass for this series was made by Theresienthal and the pewter work was done by J. Lichtinger of Munich. [R] 12.8 inch high.

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

A neat addition is the dark orange glass roundel inserted on the side.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.

Smokey glass and yet one more different lid arrangement.

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

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

Notice the similarities between all the handles and the way they split.

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

BELOW  = I HAD BEEN UNDECIDED IF THERESEINTHAL OR NOT – BUT NOW THESE I THINK AFTER LOOKING AT THEM FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS  WERE DONE BY JOSEPHINENHÜTTE . ANY COMMENTS FROM THE JOSEPHINENHUTTE COLLECTORS ??

 

The jury is still undecided about this server. It has many of the attributes of a TH stein but the colors on the enameling are a bit different, and the small ’round’ prunts are unusual. If it is not a Theresienthal – it should be !

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Same question as above.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

A pair of custom made and hand painted  “flutes” for a wedding. These are 25 inches tall!  Notice he and she both carries their own Arms and their mate’s Arms are subservient. [FWTD]
