Circa: 1933 -1937 Country of Origin: United States Manufacturer: Neustadtl Stroudsburg Brewing
An authentic 1930s yellowware tavern beer stein advertising Gesundheit brand beer, which was produced by the Neustadtl Stroudsburg Brewing Company of Stroudsburg Pennsylvania from the end of Prohibition in 1933 until the company's demise in 1937. It's 5" tall and holds 16 ounces.
I have two Gesundheit mugs. One one side is a relief scene of the old city hall in Munich. One is labeled underneath the scene Atles Rathaus Muenchen (wording does not appear on the other mug). On the other side is an old fashioned bearded gentleman with a Gesundheit stein in his hand. The underside has the incised mark "Compliments of Gesundheit" encircling the words "Free Premium".
Both steins have fine, allover crazing typical of this style and age of glazed pottery. They have the usual and common manufacturing imperfections including tiny glaze nicks and misses. One has a small chip at the base, the other has a glaze fleabite at the rim and a larger glaze flaw on the back. No cracks or major damage to either mug. Price is for each.
