Salt glazing is a unique process and involves throwing salt into the kiln during firing. Thus variations or darkening in the finish are normal and make each stein one of a kind!
The world famous Hofbräuhaus is one of Munich's oldest breweries. It was founded in 1589 and has since been one of Munich's most popular tourist attractions.
German Salt Glaze Beer Stein Mugs
Salt glazing (a process that originates in Germany) is an old, traditional form of stoneware finishing that involves the addition of salt during the firing process. It helps to give the steins a smooth, glossy finish that truly is unique to any other form of pottery or stoneware.
It is prized for both its decorative qualities and abilities to be easily painted and decorated. In addition, due to slight differences in the salt-glaze finishing process, each one of these mugs is a one of a kind, piece of original German stoneware that features some of the finest Bavarian craftsmanship.
Adorned with the world-famous Hofbrauhaus logo and decorative lid, these mugs are perfect for hosting your own at-home Oktoberfest party or adorn any parlor.
