    Hi All,

    I recently acquired a small Stein from my grandfather. Height is 95mm (3.7inch).
    I would like to know the background of this item, perhaps someone on this forum can help me out.
    There is one number: 1628, but I have no clue what that could mean.

    Many thanks!

    Well, the subject is Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, which is a not uncommon theme on German, small steins, sometimes called children’s steins.

    Also, the Dec 2007 issue of Prosit has an article on Snow White and photos of a number of steins illustrating the story. One is a full color version with lid of your stein. Note that this is the original Brothers Grimm version of the story, not the modern Disney one. In German she is Schneewittchen. Kinder krug is German for child’s stein.

      In looking at the Old Stein Manufacturers Catalogs in the Reading Room, I would say that your stein is Marzi & Remy, mold number 1628.
