Early 19th century Westerwald stein

From the collection of Paul Van Eck

Pewterer's mark inside the lid

This type of stein is found in the 'low countries' (the Netherlands / Belgium). Such steins were produced in large quantities. They were made to be used, not to be esthetically pleasing. Hence the finish was never very detailed and the lid often did not fit too good.

The owner's initials 'I M' are impressed into the pewter lid.
