I came into a few steins and I’m hoping the experts on this board can provide some insight to them.
I know the Miners stein is a Gerzit, but haven’t been able to find much information about it. The King Gambrinus stein doesn’t have any markings I can make out so I’m not sure if it’s original or a replica. The larger one (numbered 243 8 on the bottom) has a German inscription on the lid, I’m guessing it was for a Silver Wedding Anniversary, dated 21.6.1902. Do you think it was made/given in 1902 to celebrate the anniversary or in 1927? The dancing people are only marked “Made in Germany” and a “G.K.” near the handle.
I would appreciate any information you can provide as well as what they might be worth.
I’ve tried to add the photos to my Google Photos, but not sure if it works. Please let me know if the pics are not available.

The first stein (tavern scene) was apparently made in 1902 to celebrate wedding anniversary. The second (miner) is modern, and the most appealing thing about it is the lid. The third and fourth steins are both old, circa 1890-1900,and both have modest appeal to collectors. The first one is more attractive, the second has the GK signature which will attract some collectors. Retail value is likely #1-$25-$35, #2-$10, #3-$25, #4-$15-$20.

The first stein appears to be Marzi & Remy #243.
