Well maybe someone can help me out. I bought a humorous stein off eBay which was made just for the American market. Its a half liter & written in English “ANOTHER LITTLE DRINK WON’T DO US ANY HARM” LOOKING TO FIND OUT WHO MADE IT AND ABOUT WHEN. The only markings on the bottom, “MADE IN GERMANY” in a semi circle over the number 1455 which is also on the side. Well made, lid fits well and pewter looks to be from 30’s or right after WWII although its not marked West Germany.
