Pinten

The Pinten was an early step in the development of modern steins and resembled a squat jug in appearance. They were not necessarily made with the finest in craftsmanship.

The typical volume of these jugs was 1 pint (473 milliliters).

The "Pinten" was smaller, squatter version of the tall, conical Schnelle tankard found around the Cologne in the 1500ís.
