    My friend has a large collection of German Beer Steins. I took this photo in 2010 when I was visiting him.

    Neat! Maybe if your friend is a collector he can tell me something about this one that my father brought home.

    Very Cool Stein.

    Unfortunately my friend is very old and blind now. He wouldn't be able to see it. If I get over to see him I will try & describe it to him. I looked through the photos that I have of his collection & I don't see one like yours.
    I know that he has a lot of WWI German military steins.

    Maybe someone else on the forum will be able to help.

    Thanks. I've been trying to upload the base with the manufacturers name. Your friend may know of them. There is a round makers mark cast into the bottom. It says G. Wieninger SEN and Munchen 50

    found this on a search. Gustav Wieninger Sen.

    Welcome to Stein Marks.



    Werkstätten für Keramik-Malerei G. Wieninger Snr.

    Lindwurmstraße 93, Aberlestraße 16, Sendling, Munich. Bavaria.
    Keramischer Malerei und Zinngießerei / Painters of ceramics and pewterer.
    The company was a Mitglied des Verbandes Keramischer Malereien. (Member of the Federation of Ceramic Painting).
    The following are thought to be home addresses. The years mentioned are when the streets were built or renamed: ● Gustav Wieninger Sen. at Tumblingerstraße 19
    & then after 1890, Oberländerstraße 12 Gustav Wieninger Jun. after 1886 Daiserstraße 13 Karl Wieninger at Lindwurmstraße 93, after 1878.
    The workshop was at Lindwurmstraße 93, up until 1904, and then moved to Aberlestraße 16, in 1904/5, where it remained until at least 1957.
    The business of Kaspar Reischenböch was purchased on the 21st May 1910, by Gustav Wieninger Jun. and transferred to Aberlestraße 16,
    Founded in 1828. It was thought they had finally closed circa 1999. However in July 1999, a new workshop at Am Lehwinkel 1, was opened by
    Gabriele Wieninger, the great granddaughter of Gustav Snr. in the business of glass and porcelain painting & ceramic screen printing.

    Purchased steins from: Merkelbach & Wick, Wick-Werke and with designs from Ludwig Holwein
    Reference: Munich street names Fotokeramik
    Adressbuch München 1874


    It looks like they will identify & value your stein for $9, see below.


    Welcome to Stein Marks.

    Identifications and Valuations

    Stein Marks will always remain "Free to view”. However I receive many requests for Identifications and valuations, and I am spending hours of my day answering them. I have therefore decided to charge a nominal amount to cover my time.

    If you wish me to identify and / or value your stein, please send me correctly focussed photos, suitable for full screen viewing, as shown in the formats below, whilst at the same time listing your specific questions. If I am able to fulfil your request, I will reply with an email address enabling you to send the fee to my Paypal account. Once the fee has been received, I will supply all available information.
    The valuation will be subject to the information you give me, and on your country of residence. Please state whether it is valuation for actual selling price or insurance purposes. The condition of the stein is all important. Are there any hairline cracks, chips, staining or other damage? Is the lid undented, sitting straight and level and tightly secured to the handle? The resulting valuation is an estimate based on the author's market experience and should only be used for guidance. It does not guarantee the market price you will achieve!

    For the above service, the current pricing, per stein is:

    G.B. £’s Sterling - £6.50

    Eurozone. - €8.00

    US dollars - $9.00
    Other currencies - Pro rata.

    To make a payment, please either log onto your Paypal account, or follow this link Paypal:


    Long term contributors to Stein Marks will continue to receive a free service.

    WOW! Thanks. It is in the possession of my brother. I should have him get it appraised. The helmet and individuals name and unit may add to the value.
