Antique Beer Stein Rare Theodore Teddy Roosevelt Safari Expedition Pottery Relief Beer Stein Circa 1910 Made in Germany tankard Bar German
This lovely stein came from a wonderful estate of a collector of unique glass, barware and German steins. A wonderfully produced piece depicting the Smithsonian and National Geographic sponsored 1909 hunting trip to Africa of President Roosevelt after the end of his second term!
Theodore Roosevelt (October 27, 1858 – January 6, 1919) was an American statesman, author, soldier, reformer, naturalist, and explorer. Who served as the 26th President of the United States from 1901 to 1909.
In March 1909, shortly after the end of his second term, Roosevelt left New York for a safari in Africa. The trip was sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution and the National Geographic Society and received worldwide media attention.
His party, which included scientists from the Smithsonian, killed or trapped over 11,397 specimens, from insects and moles to hippopotamuses and elephants. 512 of the animals were big game animals, of which 262 were consumed by the expedition. This included six white rhinos. Tons of salted animals and their skins were shipped to Washington; the number of animals was so large, it took years to mount them.
The Smithsonian was able to share many duplicate animals with other museums. Of the large number of animals taken, Roosevelt said, “I can be condemned only if the existence of the National Museum, the American Museum of Natural History, and all similar zoological institutions are to be condemned.”
Although based in the name of science, there was a large social element to the safari. Interacting with many native peoples, local leaders, renowned professional hunters, and land owning families made the safari much more than a hunting excursion. Roosevelt wrote a detailed account of this adventure; “African Game Trails” describes the excitement of the chase, the people he met, and flora and fauna he collected in the name of science.
All of that commemorated in a superb piece of artistry! The wording on the stein (which is translated in a poetic rather than literal sense) reads – around the bottom: “By day and by night, the hunter is watches.”; under the male lion: “Roar is the lions roar when the waiter forgets your beer to pour.”; under the lioness and cubs: “Calm blood and clear eyes are necessary for hunting.”
Unique design items are…..the volume is 1-1/2 liters, the handle is made up of a lioness climbing tree branches, a regal lion finial, and the thumb press is a wonderful aged pewter in a beautiful scroll leaf pattern – which rests perfectly atop the head of the head of the lion on the handle.
The bottom is stamped “Germany” and measurements are approximately 13-1/4” tall (to the top of the lion head finial), 4-3/4” across the base, 6-1/4” in width (handle arch across), 3-1/8” across the mouth and has an inside depth of about 10”. With an age of approximately 106 years old, there is surprising little wear! The only items of note are aging discoloration on the pewter and a minor dent to the ring around the finial – which cause NO damage to the ceramic!
Other than noted there are no cracks, chips, or repairs. NOTE: This piece is heavy – weighing close to 4 pounds!
This wonderful piece would make a perfect addition to your Presidential memorabilia or stein collection better yet - an endearing gift for someone special!
