    I have been trying to find some info on a stein I received from my grandfather many years ago. Sadly I think it is a reproduction but figured I would check here. Thanks in advance!

      Why do you think it is a reproduction? It looks genuine to me! It was made by Duemler & Breiden, see It looks like it has a photo of the owner hanging on the lid. Is it your grandfather? If it is, it would be priceless to you.

    Wow, thanks for the info. I did a little checking and thought it was reproduction since there was no manufacturing stamp and the lid has pretty obvious seam marks. Like the 3 separate molds put together as one.

    I don’t think the picture is of my grandfather, being a WW1 I think it might be his father or grandfather.

    Thanks again for the info.

    It also looks like it might have a Stanhope, a glass rod which has a photo glued to one end. If in fact this looks like a glass rod, try looking through it to see if there is a scene.

    Hi Walt,

    Are you referring to the small glass piece in the soldiers stein? I did look through didn’t see anything. If there was a picture there it’s long gone. Thanks for the info.

    Doing some more looking around, I believe the picture hanging from the lid is of Kaiser Wilhelm II. Sadly not a picture of my relative. Now I’m trying to find out as much as possible about the Regiment. Thanks again for the help.

    I’m not sure your forum allows for such inquiries, but I’m trying to solve a puzzle of trying to identify a tavern from a photo posted on social media. The suspected location is somewhere in central New York State, possibly Oneida county.
    In the picture that I estimate circa early 1900’s there appears to be an old stein sitting against mirror at the back of the bar that I’m hoping may be locally significant to the establishment, and wondering if someone might be able to identify the stein that I cropped out of the original photo, or from the highly magnified version I also created. If so, here is a link to them.

    Thank you for your help.

      You should have started a new thread rather than tacking it on to another unrelated thread. I can’t view your link.
