Mini GERZ German Beer Stein Shot Glass Pewter Metal Lid Ceramic Tankard Art Bavaria Castle Mug Renaissance Oktoberfest Groom Best Man Gift
These two German beer steins are a mini size, great for use as a shot glass for any drink or beer, or simply for display. Each has a pointed silver tone metal lid with ornate embossed floral motifs. They were designed exclusively by GERZ in Germany, a renowned German company specializing in steins whose craft went back to 1835, until they went bankrupt in the 1990s.
These antique style steins are both crafted with beautiful details and images (listed below in detail). The images and details on the surface have a dimensional effect. The metal lid opens easily and has a knob over the handle to open it when pulled down with your thumb. Perfect for costumes, reenactments, Renaissance Faire, filming, or just for everyday use. Use it as a "shot glass", drink your beer in mini increments, display it as a crafted art piece on your mantel or bookshelf, or give it as a gift!
