PAGE TWO – Collectors, also please remember because I am using a collection of photos taken at different times at different places, by different people, with different lighting; the colors of the “TH” light green-yellow steins are going to vary greatly.
Below: Non-server TH steins with the gold trim around the leaves and flowers:
Large “C” handle, .5 liter [FWTD]
Nice delicate workmanship. [RFA]
Same body as above, but with an enameled glass inserted lid which I assume was more expensive given the labor involved.
Side view of above. .5 liter. The pewter lid was done by G.Th.M. [FWTD]
.5 liter. Lid by G.Th.M.
.5 liter. [FWTD]
.5 liter, same stein body as above with a different lid.
.5 liter, with (I originally said=(a seldom found body shape) [FWTD] but now given two shown below / posted later , I am not too certain!
Same body style as just above with a different design.
.5 liter. ‘C” handle and body style as the two above . [Photo: eBay’s BEER-STEIN]
.5 liter. The gold flower trim is mostly worn off.
.5 liter. Silver plated lid.
.5 liter. Very nicely done. Comes with a different body style and a silver lid. I wish it was here at the SM & T.
.5 liter. Not many TH’s found with pewter bases = more costly! [FWTD]
Above, just two great looking TH glass steins: Just above: .5 liter. It looks larger due to the pedestal base, with unusual “sea shell’ prunts. A real eye and dollar catcher!
WITHOUT THE GOLD TRIM ON THE FLOWERS:
.25 liter. [FWTD]
.5 liter. With an unusual Mermaid thumblift. [FWTD]
.5 Liter– The design is slightly different than both above. [FWTD]
Above and below: Both .5 liters.
.5 liter. ‘C” handle and different body style. [Photo: eBay’s BEER-STEIN]shown above also.
Another type of floral and not too exciting [for me!]
A ,5 liter “lidless” stein – This piece has a indentation on the handle which servers the same purpose as an anchor hole. I think this was not too popular a design as I have only seen one of these since I started collecting TH pieces.
OTHER ENAMELED STEINS
Both .5 liter with different verses. [FWTD]
THE MUNICH CHILD
MUNICH CHILD STEINS -these are also called “Munich Maids ” Please see the article on the proper name / history of ‘this figure’ at: http://www.steincollectors.org/ ** Library **, then: “The History of the Munich Child – The Beloved Symbol of Munich.”
Not all Theresienthal’s ‘Munich Maids’ have the “red halo,” as the three above show. But the majority found will. Notice that they all do have red shoes though.
.25 liter. [FWTD]
The capacity mark so typical of Thereseinthal work.
Above ▲Another version of the scene above but without a pewter base rim and it shows a perfectly mouth blown shaped “C” handle
Essentially the same PUG scene as on the .25 liter just above, but a beer stein takes the place of the bible with the Red cross on it.
All others below are .5 liter.
While this is a server (which are displayed on another page, I have included it here also as another example of the Munich Maid and her relationship with the Munich brewers.
Set of “mini-beakers” for schnapps made by Theresienthal for the Eduard Rau Company.
Set of beakers, shot glass size.
Editor’s note: A reader was nice enough to send me this photo of his Theresienthal Munich Maid stein. Unfortunately I do not think it is one. Can you tell why? The red halo is not bright red and (hard to see) she has on dark, not red shoes! The j ury is still out. I’ll need to see more examples of this.
ARMORIALS / STUDENT’S SOCIETY STEINS
[L] A nice notched lid, made that way. Not a number of duels! [R] Another student society (dueling) stein, notice there are no small pair of crossed swords, however it has the German saying of
[L] Unknown arms [R] Hungarian Royal Arms.
[L] A one liter with pewter base. [R] A well done 1/2 liter TH stein. Not seen often! Lid and thumblift by G. Th. M.
[L] No extra charge for the replaced wooden/ copper[?] finial. [Lousy photo]
Photo as above, with much better coloration, and her colors have changed.
Two enameled steins of a series, scrolls and base prunts, same lid.
Both: More of the same series.
A different series and body styles.
Yet another series. Lids are by G.Th M. (Brothers Tannhauser, Munich.)
