    I received this Stein from my mom. She said it was her grand dads Stein from Germany. She can date the Stein back to late late 1800's. Any idea on value?

      hi ,any marks on bottoms
    4. AZHiker, 9 years ago
      No marking that I can see. There is a number 5 along with a umber 880. And also a big X.

      My mom used to say her grand dad walked all the way into the village of Landau on a Friday night and had it filled with beer to hold him for the weekend.

      AZ, that's a light drinker unless he filled it with rum, gin etc..!
    7. AZHiker, 9 years ago
      I'd bet it holds a gallon. It's pretty big and wide.

      No beer drinker would buy that much beer & expect not through it out the next day. Flat beer is horrible at best! Take it from a beer lover. 2 1/2 days! Ugh!!

      Blunder.. We're talking 100 years ago.. Think then, not now. They didn't even have refrig back then..
    10. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 9 years ago
      I was thinking "then". That's why I added "Ugh". If the only beer available was hot & flat, I would quit.

      This is a 3,0 L relief stein by Marzi & Remy in Höhr (Höhr-Grenhausen since 1936), Germany. It is probably circa 1900. The mold number is 880 and mold 952 is a 0,25 L stein designed to go with it (they usually had pewter lids). The text on mold 880 is “Sei im Geiste frisch, beim zechen fröhlich, mit wenig froh,
      im reden frei, dem Liebchen treu.” (Be fresh in spirit, joyful when drinking, content with little, free in your speech, true to your sweetheart.) The images around the central frieze are taken from prints by Renaissance engraver Hans Sebald Beham (1500-1550). The text on mold 952 is “Deten wir verkaufen.”
      (We would like to sell.) “Zum wein wolt wir laufen.” (We want to go and have some wine.)

      The master stein is in the range of $150 to $225 in mint condition (no issues and no repairs). The small steins (usually four to six for the set) are only worth about $20 in mint condition without the lids.

      BTW, this is for short hitters. There are two steins that vie for the world's largest beer stein. One is 32 L and the other is 39 L!

      That's a lot of info to digest. "true to your sweet heart" would be the hardest one to keep. Surely 32 Liter & above had refrigeration units! LOL
