    After hours of research, I’m giving up and now asking for help. I have seen these types of steins before in the past, but now when I finally own some, I can’t find any information on them. Looking type, year, manufacture, etc. And any Prosit! or other articles that I can read more about them. Pictures below. Thanks in advance, Rob

    If you have an interest in early stoneware steins, then you need a copy of Early Stoneware Steins from the Les Paul Collection. Here is a review of the book, http://stein-collectors.org/library/articles/EarlyStoneware/EarlyStoneware.htm. Steveonsteins has an article on modern reproductions. A collector that is an expert on early stoneware stein could give you an idea of the approximate age of your steins and the area where they were produced.

      Another good book on the subject is German Stoneware 1200-1900 by David Gaimster.

    Very nice early stoneware steins, most likely westerwald. The cream colored stein is older based on the covered hinge pin. Probably 1820-1860. The other stoneware stein with the hinge exposed is probably a late 1870 – 1910 stein.
