      Kendell,

      I could get the photos to open by right clicking on them and opening them in a new window. The central image taken from a painting entitled “Zur Gesundheit” (To Your Health) by Franz von Defregger (1835-1921). I believe this one painting is the most popular one to be found on beer steins. Your stein is a 2,0 Liter (as indicated by the 2L on the bottom of the stein) relief ceramic pouring pitcher. W. Germany indicates it was produced sometime during 1949-1990, most likely the second half of that period. Gerz went out of business sometime after reunification and Domex bought the name, logo and some of the molds.

      These new steins typically don’t sell for more that 1/2 of their original price. You can get an idea of pricing by reviewing ebay completed sales. Relief and newer steins are not high on the list for collectors.
