The pewter lid has engraved name on top (Gusthaus Ebneth)... Many of these were decorated with contemporary British subjects while others were decorated in blue and white chinoiserie themes.. Light signs of previous use should be consistent with age on the faience stein...Some scrapings on the white glazed area of stein, at base there are some flakes along the rim area - Antique collectors will struggle to find a genuine piece of antique tin glaze earthenware that does not have chipped edges.. Doing research, I noticed some being considered Sicilian, Italian, Spanish, French and German. Faience is simply a glazed earthenware pottery. Unlike stoneware, which is vitrified and requires no glaze, faience is porous and requires a glaze to keep liquids from seeping through. Clay, sand and lime are mixed in the proper proportions and water is added to produce a slurry which is then sieved to remove impurities.
Like stoneware, faience objects can be produced one of two ways, on a wheel, or in a mold. Objects such as Enghalkrugs (narrow necked jugs) were produced in plaster molds and the slurry could be used as mixed.
However, if the object was to be thrown on a wheel, the slurry was poured into backs, or holding tanks until enough water had evaporated to thicken the clay. It was then kneaded until it was the proper consistency for the wheel. Once made, either on the wheel, or in the mold, the objects, in our case steins, were set aside to dry before the handles were attached..
Many were made from "home artists" who literally worked out of their homes.. If there is a problem and unable to pay within the 4 day time frame, feel free to contact me, we can certainly work something out...
