I am trying to find any info about a stein I have that is a Geschutzt monkey head .5L stein, probably made of faience, pewter and “faience” lid, pewter looks old (shiny inside dull out), only marking on it at all is “Geschutzt” on the side at the bottom next to the handle, and it is in absolute perfect condition. I don’t know anything about steins, an old boyfriend left it behind years ago. I am just curious if it has any value, is it collectible, and I would just like to find it a good home, cause I don’t have any interest in keeping it any longer.
From your description this appears to be the porcelain monkey head stein by E. Bohne Sohne, and if so, it definitely has value. Can you send a photo to the webmaster of this site by email so it can be posted here?
As Walt said, a photo is best. However, you can view the monkey steins at The Beer Stein Library listed under the Reading section of this site. Bohne mold 4781 is the old and valuable one, but Stahl mold 4781 is the modern and less expensive version.
