Since 1945, making beer steins has changed a lot. Before the First World War, the stoneware and porcelain industry in Europe was second to none. Because of the ready-made materials (clay) for pottery and ceramics, especially for making steins, Germany abounded with stein makers. During the war years, due to lack of material and personnel, the production of stein decreased. However, during the 10 years after the Second World War, the production of stein gradually revived.

Most of the steins produced in the 50s were copies of earlier prints. Stein makers use old molds but make new steins. As I mentioned above, this number is on the lower end of most mushroom numbers for German Steins. The two most popular steins are regimental steins (see the first stein post) and souvenir steins (mostly steins) for military personnel. Since the end of World War II, the United States has had many military personnel in Europe.

Before I go any further, I want to show you a stein I have that I believe is hard to find. This stein was probably made between 1947 and 1949.

Initially, despite being one of the Allied Powers during World War II, France was not granted an occupation zone due to the great historical animosity between France and Germany, as well as concerns about France’s small role in the alliance. In the end, Britain and America agreed to cede a small part of their territory to France. This arrangement results in a French region consisting of two non-contiguous regions, although the two regions share a border with France itself. The headquarters of the French military government is located in Baden-Baden. Saargebiet, an economically important region due to rich coal deposits, was expanded and became the Saar Protectorate in 1947. The country is nominally independent, but its economy is integrated with the French economy. The aforementioned stein was made in the associated French region during a relatively short run. Reminds me of the resistance of the French during the war. Ha!

In the 60s and 70s, the number of beer stein manufacturers decreased. Today, a significant number of steins are produced only by a few large companies that have modernized and automated production. It is important for collectors to know which companies no longer make steins. Obviously, the discontinued steins will be available in a day if they haven’t already been collected due to limited supply.

In my next post, I’ll talk about authentic American collections when I talk about Civil War relics. There is no gung ho collector who researches and collects American Civil War history. So next time, Happy Collecting and remember “the best is yet to come”.

There are two trains of thought behind labor steins. The most common is “do what you do.” Many steins have been made and given as gifts over the years to craftsmen who could produce quality work for a customer and the customer wanted to show their appreciation. There are collectors who specialize in steins representing one profession.

The appearance of the trade is usually displayed on the case, cover and/or thumblift. The scenes usually show workers at work or in uniform, or the implements or tools of their trade.

Some steins initially work hard to identify as “professional” steins. For example, buckets, stirrers or buckets in barrels (brewers), shears and dividers (tailors), oxen or ladles (butchers and bakers). Books refer to professional occupations such as lawyers or teachers. The Hapsburg double-headed eagle was depicted when famous craftsmen such as Johann Gutenberg were depicted.

Stein crafts can be found in all eras and in all materials. The most frequently collected works are those from the 1900s with tin lids and porcelain or stone bodies.

This is for today’s collectors. In the next post I will discuss some of the steins from the war years, especially World War II. Until then, stay happy and remember that the best is yet to come.

My father started collecting beer in the 1970s. My family drinks a lot, but my dad likes to drink beer and so do I. Most steins are made in Germany. At least collectible. Who hasn’t heard of Mettlach Steins? The most collectible stein for stein collectors.

Most steins are made of earthenware or stone. Early faience shells, many of which were hand-painted or modeled after Chinese procella. Faience is a branch of the special collection in Steins. Here are some other things to look for when collecting steins. The shape of the stein, the size, the lid (whether or not), whether the lid is porcelain or has a tall finial. decorative toe risers, caps, footrests, if decorated, the handle will help distinguish the maker from the matte, but of course the most important maker’s mark is the stamp printed or painted on the base of the matte.

An important area for stein collection is the old Polk stein. I see many of them for sale on eBay and in trade/collector catalogs. Throughout history, those who served in a unit in Europe were awarded a stein that recognized service to the country and identified the unit. This Stein was also copied. In fact, even some copies are now almost antiques.

The stein pictured above is actually a reproduction of the original Polk Stein, but this stein was made around 1947 by Porzellan and Glasmalerei Carl Rau. The cover is tin and hand welded. Notice below the lithopan of the dancing couple. Lithopans are often found in Polk Stein.

A brief explanation of Maker’s Marks. Many steins have German stamps or are printed with numbers on the bottom. Often this number determines which mushroom is used. Identifying the factory or manufacturer of this matte. So this number is not important except to feel the mold of the stein and to say that the stein is not thrown by hand (a very early stein making method).

Replicas and old beer steins are still produced today, so you need to know the history of the vessel to know the value of a German beer stein.

Beer steins came about as a result of laws passed by some German governments that required all drink and food containers to have lids. Due to legal and other sanitary conditions, the recurrence of the bubonic plague, known as the Black Death, was a reaction to the fear that it would be caused by several attacks of flies in Central Europe in the middle and late fifteenth century. Until then, most people drank beer out of pottery or porous wooden cups. The rich and upper classes drank from glass, pewter, or silver vessels called beakers or tankards.
