    Hello I have a Gerz Stein that was given to me by a great aunt and I wanted to learn about the history.

    Any info would be great.

    Thank you

    Brandon,
    Your stein shows the Trumpeter of S├Ąckingen. It is a very common theme. Please show us a picture of the stein’s bottom.

    Brandon, it is a post-World War 2 relief stein based on the artwork of Carl Schweninger Jr. engraved in 1887, after the death of the writer Josef Viktor von Scheffel. The Trumpeter of S├Ąckingen is a long epic poem written in 1853. This scene is entitled “Abschied” (“Farewell” in English).
