KING WORKS are situated in the Westerwald (Western Forest) of Germany, near the Rhine and Koblenz (the ancient Roman town of Confluentia) as well as the famous Limes (the fortified Roman border).  In the very first centuries after Christ, you will perhaps find the oldest roots of potters' tradition in the area.  Backed by generations of experience in finest craftmanship, KING-Steins are mostly based on designs of antique originals.  The KING-Collection of Old German, Bavarian, Austrian and Tyrolian Steins, Tankards and Mugs offers you a choice of the most original and skillfully designed products available.  The trademark KING guarantees the most authentic quality to all friends of genuinely handcrafted and hand-painted German Steins.

The beer stein originated in Germany in the 14th century, primarily due to the plague and invasions of flies across Europe.  Laws were then passed requiring beverages to be covered for hygiene purposes.  Steins were made from stoneware, glass, porcelain and silver and primarily had a pewter lid; these being either conical, flat or ornate.  Factories generally still remain in Germany and England.


Hours of hard work go into each and every stein with such an attention to detail.  Each member of the team is a true craftsman and takes pride of their part in their creation.  It really is a team effort.
