Miniature Steins
In Five Installments

Elaborating on the Featured Stein for September, we take an in-depth look at miniature steins.

Beginning in 2003 SCI Master Steinologist Les Paul wrote a series of articles for Prosit about miniature steins. Many collectors are attracted to minis because they require less display space, and they are often modestly priced.

Miniatures – Introduction – Children’s, Souvenirs, Gifts, Materials

Miniatures – Alabaster minis – Transfer Decorated

Miniatures – Brewery minis – Not as common as one might think, but interesting promotional pieces

Miniatures – Characters – Many full-size character steins were also made as minis

Miniatures – Charms and Pins – Wear ’em on a bracelet, or your hat, or lapel

These articles, and more, can be found in the READING area.
