Vintage Souvenir Brasilia Brazil Miniature Stein

by GalleriaLindaLoft

This is a little treasure vintage collectible souvenir from Brasilia, Brazil, the capital city that was built in the late 1950s to early 1960s. This stein is from the late 1950s.

Steins of all sizes and theme are hugely popular as collectors items and those made by Ceramarte, as this one is, are coveted.

It has a signature hallmark on the bottom. "Ceramarte" is a Brazilian manufacturer that makes beer steins for a variety of companies, including Budweiser and Avon.

This miniature stein is pristine in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs and is in a lovely light gray with a forest green pattern and print.

Featured in illustration on one side is the famous Brasilia Congress building and on the other side an illustration of the famous Brasilia Cathedral building.

Brasilia is a fabulous "phoenix" story. It was a planned city that was literally carved out of the uninhabited Amazon jungle and built before the city was inhabited by people. During the transition of the capital from Rio de Janeiro to Brasilia, government representatives would commute from Rio to Brasilia by air while roads were being built.

The buildings are very modernistic of the early 60s era. I found this web site where you can see the modern buildings illustrated as they are today: http://www.aboutbrasilia.com/photos/

If you love funky history, this is a good one for you. If you have a stein collection, this one is a must for you. If you have an affection for Brazil, get this little piece of history!

Use it on your desk for paper clips, as a pot a tiny cactus in it, or display. It is miniature and fun. This would make a great gift for any South American friend you may have!

SIZE: 2.5 inches tall and 1.5 inches at the widest bottom base.

Made from ceramic pottery.
