Mettlach Villeroy and Boch Antique Etched German Lidded Mug Beer Stein. Stoneware, etched tapestry , 0.5L, pewter lid, signed by C. This beer stein has been made in Germany around 1890 by Mettlach. This stein depicts a seated, bearded highlander with his elbows leaning on a table.
In his left hand is a gray stoneware mug. Stein in mint condition, without damage, the lid works fine as well. We know that Warth worked on copper engravings and stoneware models for Villeroy & Boch, Mettlach, from 1854 to 1892. During this period, while he was incidentally not a resident of Mettlach, he created many well-known steins. In addition to this considerable output of steins, one finds Warths signature on quite a number of plates and plaques.
Warth is well known to stoneware collectors, and Warths style is unmistakable. Always clear in his design and with astonishing strength in statement in his scenes, Warth breathes life into his characters, forms and landscapes.
