J.P. Thewalt Stein Catalog

Founded circa 1852 in the Westerwald town of Höhr (now Höhr-Grenzhausen), the firm of Joh. Peter Thewalt maintained continuous operations through several generations thereafter. However, there is little evidence that any stein production took place prior to 1887, following the death of the founder and the takeover of management by his son Karl. Eventually succumbing to the to financial strain of the depression, the firm closed it doors for good circa 1930. J.P. Thewalt steins often exhibit striking similarities to those produced by the firm of J.W. Remy, including identical components such as handles and lid inlays. This crossover can be attributed to the fact that Karl Thewalt was married to the daughter of J.W. Remy, which led to the sharing between the two firms of technology, workers, and even a common kiln.
