Description
Sensual Glass Beer Stein from the 1880s, very rare porcelain inlay depicting nude bathing women in near photographic quality. Early Victorian erotica which I don't think was intended for public display but rather private use.

High quality Stein with thick heavy base and a simply yet brilliant ' window panel' cut.
Glass is free of any damage, couple of insignificant superficial scratches, extremely good condition throughout.
Small air enclosures.
Of particular interest is also an unusual square stamp at the bottom of the handle, one I haven't seen before, showing 1/2, a stag, the letter L (indicating it's a half liter capacity) and the number 7 below it.
An unusual place to put the capacity mark.

Time typical 1880s wreath type lever, securely fitting lid which sits as tight as the day it was made.
Everything about this Stein speaks quality and old original craftsmanship, with it's main feature being the rare erotic lid scene.

It measures 17cm tall (19cm up to lever), 9.5cm base diameter and 0.5l internal volume.
