Avon Railroads Stein
This collector’s item is a limited-edition (#35625 ) made of ceramic and handcrafted exclusively for Avon in Brazil by Ceramarte. In addition, it was distributed in 1982 to celebrate the history of America’s railroads.
Consequently, it has raised images of The General steam locomotive, Union Pacific Railroad railway company, the Twentieth Century Limited express passenger train, and the American Orient Express luxury passenger train.
Additionally, because the Avon Railroads Stein has a railroad theme, the thumb lever looks like a steam train’s whistle and the lid looks like a train wheel. Both the thumb lever and the lid are made of pewter. Although it is out of its original box, this Avon Railroads Collector Stein has never been used. Therefore, it is in excellent condition.
The first chartered railway, built-in 1826, was used to move freight and ran about three miles. Several years later, in 1830, the first mechanical passenger train was developed and also traveled only a few miles.
Then by 1850, over 9,000 miles of railway track had been lain making it possible for railway systems to travel outside of the local domain. By 1870, transcontinental railroads were running from the East and the West establishing a new era in American history.
Since then America’s railroads have had a large impact on both economic life and the growth of the American people. The Avon Railroads Stein is a great piece of memorabilia for collectors, American history buffs, train enthusiasts, and beer drinkers.
