The stein is made of glass - black glass. The trim – stripping on the bottom, the crest, and the wording of the poem are in gold – stands out against the black glass.

This stein has a pewter lid and poem on one side.
With one exception - this stein is in excellent condition. The exception is that the lid is loose. Not loose like vintage steins that wiggle from side-to-side – this stein has no wiggle from side-to-side. It is like the glue(?) has stopped holding the lid in place where it is attached to the handle. I have tried to show this in the pictures. I believe that if an adhesive were applied that would go away. But that is not my place to do that – I do not have that expertise. As I stated, if this were corrected this would be in excellent condition.
There are no chips or cracks.
This stein is “used”. I bought it used, but I have never used it in the 20-25 years I have owned it.
The poem reads:
The wonderful love of a beautiful maid,
And the love of a staunch true man,
And the love of a baby unafraid,
Have existed since life began;
But the greatest love, the love of love,
Even greater than that of a mother,
Is the tender, passionate, infinite love
Of one drunken sot for another.
3-5/8” wide at the base
3” wide at the mouth
