    Hello and Thank you. My name is Chase. It rained all day today. Bored, I took interest in a Stein that my Grandmother Hildagarde Stumph gave me. She gave me this Stein perhaps 40 years ago. The handle is a fox with a long tail. The Stein has a lid. “Die grune Heid Des Jagers Freud” is written on the Stein. The colors are bright. Today, looking at Google Images, all the Steins have stamped markings ie.. “Made In Germany” or similar on the bottom of the Stein. The Stein I have only has “2” and the glaze on the bottom covers only half of the surface. Also, the Google Images of other Steins show a Stamp on the inside of the lid. The Stein that I have does not. The exterior surface of the lid is a very dull gray and the inside is very shiny silver. My Grandmother and Mother were avid collectors of ceramic “Nippon”. So, I wonder if this is a King-Werke or a copy. My Mother and Grandmother were collection experts in Nippon, not fine Steins. Thank you for reading. Chase.

    Chase,

    If it has been raining all day, you must be in Texas. It would be nice if you could send some of it to Lake Mead, they really need it.

    You have a popular, mass-produced souvenir type stein. While the fox handle can appear on antique steins, you probably have a post-WWII version. Unless it has a maker’s mark or mold number on the bottom, we probably can’t identify a manufacturer. Only exports were required to identify the country of manufacture. Not all the pewter was marked. The exterior of the lid is dark because it has gained patina over the years from being exposed to the air. The interior of the lid was protected and retained most of its original shine. “Die grüne Heid’ des Jägers Freud” translates to “The green heather, the hunter’s joy.” If you could furnish photos, we might be able to give you more information.

    Hello Ron and Thank you for your time and help. I hope these ‘links’ work. They were copied to my Facebook account. I don’t participate on Facebook. I only have the FB account to prove to anyone interested, that I am still alive. haha. I hope that I have posted the pictures correctly. If not I will ask a 10 year old neighbor to do so for me. Thank you again for your time and help. Chase.

      Chase,

      No need to get the little imp, the photos came through fine. You might want to talk to him later though about how to avoid multiple postings so you don’t look like a fool. Each posting could be viewed as a slide show, so one posting would have been enough.

      I am afraid we can’t help you with who made it, but it is most likely post WWII. You can find several listed on ebay.

    Sorry about clogging up the forum but I can’t get the image insert to work. So… Below is a Facebook link (Very bare… I’ve just set it up for a book which is with the agents!)

    Again, and finally… and help in identifying the stein would be appreciated.
