Catalog No. 5474

Pottery, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid, marked “WEKARA”.

The Bodensee (or Lake Constance), is a 4,400 square mile body of water on the Rhine River bordering Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Images on the stein depict three tourist destinations on the lake including: Konstanz, a university city of more than 80,000 inhabitants with historical antecedents dating back to the Stone Age; Lindau, located on an island at the northern end of the lake, popular with sightseers for both its picturesque setting and its medieval town center; and Friedrichshafen, once the home of the Zeppelin Airship Company, which now hosts a museum housing the largest collection of Zeppelin memorabilia in the World.

“WEKARA” is an acronym for Wilhelm E. Krumeich aus Ransbach, a Westerwald finishing shop and distributor.

Price Range: $25-$40
