Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this lovely Lidded Stein by Whites Pottery of Utica and is a wonderful example of the skill that Whites attained in molded stoneware.
The stein was made to commemmorate the 1903 Broadway play, "The Prince of Pilsen" about a brewer who was mistaken by a princess to be a prince. It was a silent movie in 1926.
This beauty features a Top Band with "Prince of Pilsen" Impressed on It,a Textured Background with the Brewer and Princess Dancing on one Side and a Placard Reading "Here's to the Heart that Beats for Me" on the Other, and a Series of Fancy Borders at the Bottom. A pewter lid completes the piece. Stands 9" to the top of the lid.
Excellent Condition. A couple minor pinhead-size nibbles on the bottom border. That's it! No rim chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
