One of the largest, rarest and most ornate Mettlach Steins in existence. It’s been on a shelf in my family’s possession since the 1930’s. Rich colors, perfect condition. Never ever used other than sitting on a mantle. Hand painted with the initials VB – Villeroy and Boch etched on the bottom, the scene is of two inebriated men who look as though they may be soldiers holding each other up. On the side a monkey sits on top of a column laughing. The rest of the bottom reads: 1055 Geschutzt, Mettlach 2176 with a mercury mark, “99” 11 2.
