    I believe that this beakers are made by Fritz Heckert. They are similar to examples that I was able to find online. I am not sure what time period this would date to.

    The inscription reads "fest allezeit in freud u leid" which loosely translates to in sorrow and joy, drink always.

      Unfortunately no. I based my attribution from other examples that I found online

      30+ year Heckert collector here. I remember when these were for sale and did not buy them because these do not look like Heckert glasses at all. Their Historismus glass was almost exclusively designed by Oskar Jummel. These are not a product of Jummel's artistry. It's not Friedrich Albert Cremer's, or Adolf Heyden's work either. These actually look more like the work of Friedrich van Hauten. If so, these would be the first Pilsner's that I've seen by van Hauten.

      Thank you for the info historismus. If these were by said decorator, what kind of time frame would they have been made?

      @vaselineally
      You can read a brief history of the company here, including dates:
      http://www.steinmarks.co.uk/pages/pv.asp?p=stein95
      There are a number of examples on this page, including a glass stein and a glass serving stein very much like your Pilsner's (pay particular attention to the floral decoration) down towards the bottom of that page.

      The company did outstanding enameling (some of the best IMO). Pieces do come up on eBay and other places, but it is very seldom that they are attributed to van Hauten. Many selling glass, including most auction houses, are severely lacking when it comes to their knowledge in antique glass. More often then not, I score pieces for my collection because no one else knows what the item is, including the seller. That works well for me.

      Oops, forgot the second link picturing the pieces that compare to your. Ad the pieces are in the top fourth of the page not towards the bottom as previously mention (the page loaded differently the second time, showing many more examples):
