Although this stein is 26 years old they are still quite popular with collectors, particularly those avid Avon fans. This Stein was made in Brazil by Ceramarte for Avon and depicts relief details of Thoroughbred racing, Standardbred racing and steeplechasing. The handle is decorated with a pewter saddle on top with stirrups/reins motif; the top of the lid has a running thoroughbred and jockey in sculptural relief, and when you lift the pewter lid inside you find a horse head within a horseshoe motif. The bottom rim is decorated with jockey silk panels. Very artistic and expressive, a wonderful piece to celebrate the Sports of Kings.
Excellent condition, stamped 1992, made in Brazil. Stein measures 10 inches tall x 4 inches wide and 14 ½ inches circumference around middle. Does not have original box.
