Unusual stein thumblifts. [1] Prior to 1900; Simple Figures, Angels, Figures, Imperial Eagles (Adlers)

 

“Here’s looking at you! “

A thumblift on a pewter roerken, Dated 1618. [FWTD] And you, as I did, probably thought character thumblift’s were much newer. They did not start being made in any great numbers until about the 1840’s.

 PLEASE NOTE: I have for over a year now placed these three 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.     

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, never seen before (therefore no comparables); but most of all = prior expectations by the owner, are among the reasons.       

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.       

My site has its own search engine [top right on each page!] So if one put in “Wood Steins” or “Hand painted steins,”  it will give one a list of all the pages that has that subject matter within it.
