ANTELOPE, Calif., Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Cuckoo for Clocks, based in Antelope, Calif., carries a wide selection of beautiful, quality cuckoo clocks and is excited to announce that they are now offering handmade German beer steins for sale on their website.
These intricately decorated offerings are created by family-owned companies like King Werk and Zoller & Born located in Kannenbäckerland in the Westerwald (Western Forest) region in Germany. Kannenbäckerland, famous among collectors as the origin of German beer stein production, has been producing beer steins for centuries.
The people of the Westerwald region take great pride in making top quality beer steins, and their workmanship is unmatched. Because of its rich clay deposits, there is no better place to make beer steins than Kannenbäckerland, Germany. While they can be used to drink beer, these beautifully decorated steins are generally intended for collection and display.
The collection of beer steins was common throughout the 1900s. Individuals as well as museums collected antique and replica beer steins. Beer steins can be made of such diverse materials as pewter, glass, porcelain, silver, wood, earthenware and crystal.
Designed as a sanitary measure to keep insects out of the beer, lids on beer steins have generally fallen out of fashion. In olden times, pewter lids were attached near the handle and generally equipped with a lever within reach of the thumb. This allowed the drinker to grab the mug and open and close the lid with a single hand. In modern times, most beer steins do not have lids unless they are intended for decorative purposes.
In addition to their new line of beer steins and their exquisite cuckoo clocks, Cuckoo for Clocks also carries weather houses and barometers. Among their clock offerings are the 2008-2013 cuckoo clocks of the year as chosen by The Black Forest Clock Association.
