    Hi, all! My husband received this beer stein as a gift from a friend in Germany about 25 years ago. Never used, all this time we just kept it in the box in the back of a cabinet. Stumbled upon it while “decluttering” and I’m curious to know if it’s valuable. The forest scene is very vibrant and unique. The box it came with says it was made in West Germany with an original handmade pewter lid and the bottom of the stein says “Made in Germany Handpainted by Armin Bay”. Would love to get feedback from people who know about such things. Thanks for your time, everybody.

    P.S. I’m new to this so all apologies if this link with photos doesn’t work…

    Your stein may have been handpainted by Armin Bay in West Germany, but it was probably made in China. See the following article: https://www.beerstein.net/articles/s9912.htm. Check ebay for prices, but they do not sell for much.
