Steins

If you're going to make beer, you're going to need steins to drink it from!  In the longstanding German tradition, Lemp commissioned the production of a variety of beer steins, each with the easily recognizable Lemp sheild logo on the pewter lid.
 
Below are a variety of Lemp steins including several from the "monk stein" series.  Prosit!.

A minor variation with the monk at the left with white hair......

The Lemp monk stein series was produced by Merkelbach & Wick from Germany in approximately 1895.  Each of the steins has the same ornate pewter lid and a different scene of monk life from some by-gone era. 
 
No one knows exactly how many different scenes were made in this unusual series of beer advertising.  All the steins in the series are 1/2 liter in volume and measure 6" tall.  Below sixteen different varieties are pictured.
