    Walt,

    I enjoyed the article. It helped me put a general NLT date that the stein would have been made, as well as a little history. Thank you for the information. Another collector reached out to me with an article about Steinzeug-Industrie that my wife and I will translate into English (She’s German). If you would like to read my translation when I am done don’t hesitate to send me an email. I am still curious about the company so I think I will do a little more research.

    There is so much information about the “big players”, but it seems so little about the smaller or “less desired” firms. When I first started collecting I bought items I thought were neat, but now days I really enjoy collecting etched steins by Mazi and Remy or JWR. Nevertheless I still try to learn about manufacturers like Wick-Werke or Steinzeug-Industrie so I am a bit more educated when buying.

    Thanks again for the replies and the information!

    Walt,
    Thank you for the reply. It is my understanding that there is limited information about Steinzeug Industries, nevertheless I was hoping that you may know a few places that you could point me. I am researching a stein that was given to me and I would like to know more about the stein itself and the company that produced it.

    In addition, I was trying to locate the December 2003 “Steinzeugwerke and Steinzeug-Industrie Coblenz” article in Prosit, but the 2003 editions of Posit are unavailable. Where you the author of that article? If so, do you still have a digital copy tucked away somewhere?

    Very Respectfully,

    Joe

    Ron,

    Thank you for your input. The characteristics of the stein drove me to the conclusion that it was produced by JWR, but with the limited resources I have I could only be “pretty sure”. I presume, like most JWR steins in this style, it is safe to estimate that the manufacturer date would be early 1900s. Would dating it prior to WWI be accurate? I enjoy putting up an estimated date when displaying my steins.

    Lastly, I think I will submit it to TBSL, so thank you once again for your input.

    Very respectfully,
    Joe

    It’s for my college English paper. Other students will be able to read the paper as well. Hopefully it will spark an interest in another student and lead them to become a collector.

    I have a copy of the “Beer Stein Book” by Gary Kirsner, which I plan to use as a reference. In addition, I will use TBSL and the member section of this site.

    I have been collecting for a three years but I have been unable to completely immerse myself in research. Now that the opportunity has presented itself, I want to take advantage of it. I also want to ensure my paper does justice to our community at large.

    Thank you for the reply and recommendations.

    Cheers,
    Joe

    TBSL has said the mark is found on Girmscheid steins.

    The phrase comes from a Theodor Storm poem titled “Oktoberlied”. The stein marks website thinks it is most likely an inspection mark. If this is the case, is it possible to determine the maker based off of the inspection mark?
