    I have a Shierholz X17 Capodimonte with a damaged finial and wish to get it professionally restored. I can only find photographs of examples with a black helmet and different colour plumes. My piece has a grey helmet and I would welcome a close-up photo of a similar finial as a guide to a restorer Many thanks

      Christopher,

      That doesn’t work either. Did you check out my references showing your stein? Do they give you what you need?

    Hi, thanks for the picture Ron. I have finally managed to post my picture. I am unsure as to appearance and colours of missing plumes to guide a restorer. Regards

      Christopher,

      The finial comes in multiple colors so it will be very difficult to find a matching one.

    Thanks George and Ron. I am beginning to realise there are a large number of variations to this finial but I think I have garnered enough photographic ‘evidence’ to put together a portfolio of examples for the restorer to work with. The stein only cost me £70 so I think it’s worth the investment.
