German Mettlach Lidded Stein / Tankard by Villeroy & Boch dates 1871-1909Pottery, v** SOLD ARCHIVES **v
This is an exemplary example of a Mettlach stein by Pillory and Boch. It featured a masterful trellis, grape vine and bird design that wraps around the body to highlight a placard that has what I believe to be a German drinking song. The plaque words, in German, are in black with red accents and are flanked with figures, one male & one female. This stein or tankard has a pottery lid that attaches to the handle with a pewter hinge, the hinge works easily to allow the drinker to open it using one hand.
