    I started collecting steins a while back with just one Mettlach Dionysus.
    I inherited a stein from my father who passed away a few years ago. My mom said his brother brought it back for my dad in the 1960s when he was in the service. I’ve searched the words on the stein as well as the numbers and such on the inside of the lid but am just not finding anything. Please see my photos.
    I’ve tried a few times looking it up various places and am having absolutely zero luck. 🙁 I’m not worried about value, just want to know manufacturer, year made, etc.

    Dave,

    This is a post WWII souvenir stein. The mark is most likely that of Simon Peter Gerz. It looks to be about a 1/4 liter capacity. I can’t quite make out the mold number under the handle but it’s in the high range you would expect from a stein of this age.

    Thank you for your help. That gives me some more to go on. I believe it says 3757. It’s definitely small — about 6″-8″ tall, roughly.
    Thanks again. 🙂
