This Rare and Amazing original 1960's Vintage Beer Stein/Tankard, from the original Playboy Club, will make a great addition to any home bar or to set off on its own in a place of honor. Own a piece of the unique Playboy & Hugh Hefner history and heritage. It has an aluminum body with the official engraved 'Playboy Bunny' logo on the sides and an intriguing glass bottom. Why a glass bottom?!?
The legend goes that the glass bottomed Beer Stein/Tankard was developed as a way of refusing the King's shilling, i.e. conscription into the British army or navy. The drinker could see the coin in the bottom of the glass and refuse the drink, thereby avoiding conscription.
In a bar fight, the first punch was thrown while the recipient had the tankard raised to his mouth; another legend has it that the glass bottom was implemented so as to see the attack coming. A further story is that the glass bottom merely allowed the drinker to judge the clarity of their drink while forgoing the expense of a fragile pint glass.
About 5 inches in height and has a great original aged vintage patina! This piece is an investment that will only get better with age. It's a must have for any man-cave, bar, garage, game room, lady den or just as a cool conversation piece in your home or office.
