I purchased this tall stein at an estate sale. Would like to know any history surrounding this stein…approximate age and manufacturer,artist,value.
Height: 9 1/2 inches
Base diameter: 4″
Bottom of stein: Made in Germany printed on outer rim. Numbered sticker: 55981. Also looks like a W or M in a box imprinted or engraved in the bottom and outside this box is what looks like an L or a 7.
Outside decoration: Dark blue background, front banner… ALSACE. Vignettes of Strasbourg, Haut-Koenigsbourg, Colmar, and Obernai, a man and a woman in traditional costume dancing, and four large white birds.
Any information would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
