My dad had this in his NY antique shop. The shop closed more than 35 years ago and I’ve inherited it. He had labeled it as an antique “early 1800’s faience beer stein”. It is approx. 4&3/4 inches high and the base is approx. 4 inches across It has the initials KW on the bottom as shown. I think its lovely but haven’t seen anything like it on eBay or Worthpoint. Trying to find approximate age/value/likely country of origin…Thanks for any suggestions! (the only thing on its bottom is KW) I hope these pictures work. I feel like Luddite trying to post these. Thanks again!

Someone more expert will probably answer this; but, in my opinion it looks like a German Faience stein and from 1775-1825 from the pewter fixtures. I don’t know values for these. KW does not show up in steinmarks but not everything does.
