Mettlach VB William Tell Stein

This collector’s item is an antique 9″ tall, hand-painted, 1/2 liter German stein that has a decorative handle, a pewter inlay lid, and a pewter thumb lever.

It was made in Germany by Villeroy & Boch (known for its quality stoneware) at the Mettlach factory. There are several markings on the bottom of the stein proving its authenticity:

  • It is incised with the 11th century Mettlach Abby logo and the Mettlach banner
  • It is stamped with the Villeroy & Boch “VB” trademark
  • It is marked with a “98” which specifies an 1898 circulation date
  • It reads “Gegen Nachbildung Geschützt” which means “protected against replica”

In addition, the body of the Mettlach VB William Tell Stein has a detailed etching of William Tell preparing to shoot an apple off of his young son’s head.

Furthermore, it is in excellent condition. This legendary piece of memorabilia makes a great gift for collectors and avid beer drinkers.
