    I am interested in buying some lids. First, let me share with you that I live in Greece NY. I first became associated with your name when I saw on the bottom of a stein your advertisement for repairing pewter. You had a business on Dewey Ave. I was hoping that I’d meet you at the Corning SCI convention, but someone said that you were visiting in Nurmberg. I keep seeing your name in articles in Prosit and I run across people who knew you in Rochester. One guy was I believe Rheinhold who worked at Kodak as a Tin Smith. Then another guy used to sell near you at a flea market. He was into WW II memorabilia. And the Uppersteiners remembered you. Anyways, I have learned how to solder pewter with a 100 Watt soldering iron and I,ll buy steins without a lid and then put a pdewter lid on thyem. I like the lids that are 3 to 31/4 wide (interior side to interior side) On Ebay I hav e often bought lids for about $20.00 apiece. What are you offering?

      Hi Charlie, very interesting, I am glad you picked it up, I still must have 100 lids, sometimes I put a lid on a stein, a thumb lift, or a hinge, but I gave it up (once in a while I put on a lid for a friend). I did a demonstration at a Uppersteiner meeting 30 years ago. The lids I have are of different sizes I am getting up in age (83) and like to reduce my collection of steins, pipes some go with and lids. My lids are between $10-18 only a special lid goes around or over $ 20.-
      We are planning to drive to Rochester this summer to see our family, if you are interested we could bring some along, sure like to see your job. Here is my e-mail if you like to stay in touch. sincerely George and Gabi
