Flower Basket

Catalog No. 3079/514

Stoneware, Bavaria-type, 0.5L, conical inlaid or pewter lid.

Text:
“Prost Blume”
(See explanation below.)

In order to fully appreciate the intent of this stein’s central image and text, one needs to understand that the German word Blume, that in addition to meaning “flower” or “bouquet” can also be used to describe the head on a beer. So while ostensibly toasting the flowers depicted on the stein, the real toast is actually to the head on the beer inside the stein (i.e., Cheers to the foam.).

Master stein is No. 3094/514.

Price Range: $125-$175
