This is an awesome, heavy weight glass stein. The porcelain top pictures a falconer holding what looks like any owl. There is a hunting dog by his side and they both are looking up at their birds in the sky. It measures 7" to the top of the pewter knob. The glass at the top measures 3" in diameter, and it bows out to about 3 3/4". It looks like pressed glass with an applied handle. It is in good condition. There are some light scratches on the glass from use over the years. There is a small chip on the bottom ground edge. On the very bottom of the handle where is is applied it looks like there is a little roughness also from use. There is a scratch on the porcelain top that goes slightly onto the pewter edge. Please let me know if you need any additional information. From a non-smoking home. Thank you.
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.
