Marty Roth Posted July 9, 2015 Share Posted July 9, 2015 While on tour in Illinois and New Glarus, Wisconsin a couple of weeks ago, during lunch I played a Swiss Alphorn as if it were a jazz trumpet. Prior to lunch we visited an antiques shop and found a beer stein which was part of a Budweiser collection. Some of you likely are aware of this piece, but I hadn't noticed it before, and Dale said I had to have it, (along with a motorcycle jacket which will zip if I stop eating until August). The 1948 Buick Roadmaster convertible on the mug is made in a "Relief", so it actually stands out from the surface, and you can feel the shape of the hood, fenders, windshield, spotlight, grille, body lines, bumper, etc. While certainly not an "antique", mt wife just could not leave it on the shelf, and handed it to me so I could negotiate a price (together with the really good stuff she wanted - two Lladro porcelain statues, etc.). 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
