Authentic German Steins
At clockshop.com.au you’ll find a wide variety of unique designs in our range of authentic German beer steins, hand-painted and carefully crafted by the finest artists in the Westerwald region of Germany. Our selection includes Oktoberfest beer steins, historical, German heritage, sports, fantasy and animal themed designs featuring lively characters. Beer steins sold by Clock Shop are guaranteed to be handmade and hand painted completely in Germany. We stock authentic beer steins manufactured by one of the two remaining beer stein manufacturers in Germany - King Works (King Werks - Wuerfel & Mueller GmbH and Co. KG).
The clay to produce them comes from the Westerwald region of Germany. This region is renowned for its’ high quality clay and this is why the remaining manufacturers that still produce authentic German beer steins are located there.
One of these manufacturers is King-Werks which not only produces its own line but in January 2011 through agreement with Albert Thewalt began producing Thewalt designs under the name “Thewalt 1893”. Their factory is located in a small village called Hoehr-Grenzhausen.
Besides authentic German collectable steins, we also offer souvenir beer steins with open tops or pewter lids.
There are many on-line retailers that sell "German Beer Steins" however many of these steins are similar to our souvenir stein range and are simply copies of German designs that are not necessarily manufactured in Germany. They typically look similar but the clay used to make them is inferior to that which comes from the Westerwald region of Germany and generally the quality of the glazing, both in application and colour, is noticably inferior. King Work beer steins are made by highly skilled potters in Germany that have been practicing their trade for years in the authentic way.
