Glass Carafe?
« on: December 15, 2012, 12:14:59 AM »
Hello All! I have something interesting here that I am unable to find anywhere. This is an old glass carafe that my great grandfather purchased from a collector in the 1920's. After some research I was able to figure out who the people on the glass were but that is all. I am unable to trace another relic like this. If anyone else has any insight on price or history of it, please share it.

Wow that is one spectacular piece of Kitsch - known in German as Bismarck Kitsch. This is from the time when Bismarck towers and monuments were erected, the family motto "in trinity lies the force" appeared all over the place and objects like your Bierdeckel were made. This would be any time after 1877, until 1914 when the Germans were once more busy doing other things.

The Bierdeckel (tankart) has a Haube (helmet) as a tasteful (..)  lid and is enameled with the family crest. The Bierdeckel would have been made at either Köln Ehrenfeld or at Fritz Heckert in Silesia - both specialised in the germanmost enamel retrodesign. 

books.google.nl/books?isbn=3640777255 has the full history of beatification of this statesman - in German.

Ivo, sorry, but did you mean 'Bierkanne' (jug) ? Bierdeckel is a coaster or beermat, isn't it ?  8)

DANKE für den Schmetterling - wunderschön!!!

Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding of worldly things moves his soul.    (Alfred Lichtwark 1852 – 1914)
