    I have a stien that is almost identical to this one, but it has an 1802 date on it, and it does not have as much color, I cant find out anything about it

    Nice stein. It looks like a middle 20th century.

    The date marking is probably representative of the scene date as opposed to the manufacture date.

    What is the marking on the bottom-- I cannot decipher it.

    Sorry, but the 1803 is probably the mold number. I couldn't make out the marking on the bottom, but it appears to say it was hand painted. This is an indication of a modern era stein. I couldn't find it in any catalogs. Visit to learn more about antique German beer steins.
