    Rachel,

    It looks like it is mold 1062 by Matthias Girmscheid. You can view it in The Beer Stein Library under the Girmscheid catalog. The price range is for a stein n mint condition in a stein auction and includes the buyer’s premium, about 30%. Prices on ebay and private sales are usually at the lower end of the range. You need several bidders to get the higher range pricing. Age would be circa 1900 up to WWI.

      I just noticed the initials “GR” near the bottom of the stein on the last picture if you click to enlarge. Does that change anything or is it still a Girmscheid? Thanks again!

      Rachel,

      Check again. The initials should be :”KB” forAnton Killian “Karl” Beuler, the stein’s designer.

    The initials on the stein are definitely “GR”. I don’t think this is a Girmschied 1062 stein. When compared to the images in the BSL, the handles are different and there are many subtle changes in the design on the stein. It may be cheap knock off of the Girmschied stein.

      …or GK? I’m a little suspicious of the line across the top which makes it look like an R, but possibly part of the background.

      Walt,

      I think you are right. Girmscheid did have a “GK” design steins. TBSL may have gotten it wrong. The handle may be different, but the body and scene are the same.

    On closer look, I agree that GK are the initials. Check out some of his work on Chris Wheeler’s Steinmarks. This stein is not the same mold as the one shown for 1062 in the BSL. Check out the branches frame just about the man’s head.

    I do believe it is an “R” even though the font looks similar to the GK. See a better picture here: https://ibb.co/album/27xgfV

    Happy to take better pictures, but also willing to accept that it might just be a fake copy. Thanks again for your time either way!

      Rachel,

      Look at this page in The Beer Stein Library. It shows the “GK” initials. It may look like the “K” is connected at the top, but I don’t think it was intended. Your stein is not a fake. It is just not that Valuable a stein to make a fake.

    Here is a close up of the initials. Initials One cannot say definitely whether it is an “R” or a “K”, but lack of rounding at the top makes me believe that the top of the “R” may be an extension of the shading just to the right of the “R”.
