“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.
I have for over a year now placed these three short “notifications” at the bottom of each page!
for the future selling of steins on auction sites such as eBay, etc. 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.
