Lovely antique Villeroy & Boch / Mettlach German beer stein, as pictured. “Journeyman Blacksmith”, Pattern number 1757. -made circa 1887. Made in etched technique with a wonderful effect. It was a special technology unique to Mettlach that many companies tried to reproduce but no one ever got close. After the great fire in Mettlach factory in 1921 the records and technology were completely lost.

Excellent condition with vibrantly colored enameled and no chips/cracks/damage. The pewter lid is secure (it is personalized...see pic)and the inside porcelain is quite clear. See close-up photos to fully understand the condition.

Marked near the handle "1L" (1 Liter). Manufacturer markings on the bottom, including pattern number "1662", "85" ( for the date of manufacturing 1885) and the Mettlach / Villeroy & Boch stamp.
