Lidded Star Wars Stein by Ceramarte is Absolutely Beautiful !!

This stein, made by Ceramarte in 1998, based on the Artwork of Drew Struzan, is one of my favorites ! It looks great mixed in with my stein collection and these pictures just do not do it justice. Here is a look at a great stein !

 
 
The front graphic is based on the awesome artwork of Mr. Struzan. Beautifully displayed in the middle of the front of the stein, it captures attention immediately ! The art and scenes on the side of the stein hearken to Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
 
 
The side relief of Vader is spectacular. The detail on the suit and the 3D design is wonderful. It really jumps out at you and can't help but to be awed by how well every detail of Vader's suit is captured. The lightsaber hilt handle is a wonderful touch. Of course, amazingly detailed and exceptionally sturdy to hoist a few !
 
 
The opposite side with Skywalker ready for combat does not disappoint. Detail and quality galore ! The most impressive part ? The Face. They have captured Mark Hamill's profile well. It really looks like him ! Quite a feat considering it is ceramic ! The lightsaber hilt, nice !











This stein is beautiful. I wish I had a better camera to capture the detail that went into this piece of art. The picture do not do it justice. It sits along side my other steins but stands out, a diamond in a collection of gems !


EDIT:

Cause the Goodwill Geek asked for more steins; here are links to stein posts I have previously written:

    1. It is gorgeous ! I wouldnt recommend drinking from it though, I have a few lidded steins that I actually use and they take quite a beating from use !

  2. That's weird. The poster is from ANH but the relief is from ESB. I do like the lightsaber handle handle, that's cool.
