32 oz. “Bottomless” Tankard Stein
There are steins, and then there is THIS stein! This 100% handmade in the USA 32 oz. Tankard mug is fashioned in the 1700s style with crimp seams, wired rim, and custom stamping. It is built using vintage tools and techniques from the 1700s and early 1800s. This shape has been authenticated to the 1700s via antiques found in Pennsylvania. The copper handle is also cut by hand and folded over twice, then formed individually over a 1700s hollow mandrel with a hammer by hand.
The base sheet is cut into a blank, measured, and cut on the circle cutter. The base is then burred, flattened, and hand-hammered over an anvil before fitting onto the body. The base is tacked on with about 200 hammer strokes before pressed down further with the vintage setting-down machine. Each of these steins take about 4 ½ hours of hand labor to complete!
