Pewter, raised-relief decoration. Unquestionably, this is the most ornate pewter beer stein available. The body design consists of four subject panels depicting works by Albrecht Duerer, a famous Renaissance painter and engraver. Pillars, archways, portraits and his famous signature serve as border decorations. The titles of each of the works of art appear below each engraving. The arches and pillars are accented in gold-leaf. Above the ornate footed base is an ornamental steeple pewter lid and a falconer is the lid figurine. Falconry, also called hawking is the sport employing falcons, hawks and eagles in hunting. The beer stein is a limited edition of ONLY 999 pieces. Each piece is individually numbered and registered.

The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
