    There is a seller on Ebay who lists steins as being from the “Mettlach Era”. I have not heard this term before to denote a period of time in stein production, has anyone else? If so, what period of time would this term define?

    Ken –

    I think the seller is just trying to get the word “Mettlach” into the search results.

    He’s basically saying it’s from roughly late 1800s to the early 1900s, pre-WW1. At least that would be my guess.

    I’ve seen the lists, too. I agree with the other repliers. There is no “official ‘Mettlach Era'”, but many collectors might be interested in these steins also.

    I’m familiar with it, I’m sure he does it so that people searching on Mettlach will bring his listings up. It irritates me enough that I don’t buy from him.
