Very pretty and unusual vintage German or Dutch ceramic porcelain pottery ladies ornate lidded floral rose stein with hand-painted pastel plump rose flowers with blue accents surrounded by green, blue and mauve rose pink painting, giving this stein an "oval medallion" look. Decorative green trim top and bottom, surrounded by pink and blue. Excellent condition with no damage to note.
Ornate heavy-duty thumb lift and lid with scrolls. The inside of the lid sports a green sticker ERBO, ZINN. Measures 4-3/4" high to the lip of the stein, 5-3/4" high to the top of the lid, 6-1/2" high to the top of the thumb-lift. The porcelain or stoneware body measures 4-1/2 in diameter at the base and it tapers up to 3" at the lip. Weighs 1 pound 5.7 ounces.
Signed on the bottom in black ink, Handgem. and perhaps a "WY" and lightly incised with "G" and "K". Due to the theme (roses) of this stein and our inability to properly translate the wording on the base, we believe this may be of Dutch origin.
