|Stein of the Month:
~ The Schierholz Snowman ~
by David Harr and Steve
In keeping with the "Holiday Spirit", the stein
of the month is the Snowman porcelain character stein by Schierholz. The
circa-1900 Schierholz catalog shows this stein as model # 38 in a half-liter
size. The stein seen here is actually a quarter-liter version, which is much
rarer. We don't know whether Scheirholz offered the Snowman in this smaller size
with the same or a different model number.
This Snowman exemplifies the holiday season and gives a view of one of the
rare character steins. Those who believe in global warming should be warned that
their half-liter stein may soon be a quarter-liter!
Until that day arrives, this stein would also
serve well in keeping your brew "frosty".
Members of SCI may read more about the Schierholz factory and its steins in
the three-part article, The Schierholz Discoveries.
