Here is a fascinating stein that my dad got in Germany while he was stationed there during WW2. Here are some observations:
2. “3L” is stamped near the top, under the lid. Is this “Three Litres”?
3. No defects or damage that I can see.
4. Depicts bloody battle scenes. Note the two poor victims at the bottom.
5. Top says “Die alten Germanen” (The Old Germans) Perhaps referring to Teutonic tribes. Also a German drinking song.
6. Bottom markings are: “58”, JSS”, “E???”

This was made by Duemler & Breiden, circa 1900, depicting one of the most important battles in history – Arminius’ (Herman the German) defeat of three Roman Legions in 9 A.D. See https://www.beerstein.net/item.asp?ItemNum=dab-0058. The number 58 is the mold number. The other marking is probably from a retailer or owner.
