Kayserzinn Serving Steins, Mugs, Beakers, etc. – ( AWPD)

 

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

PLEASE NOTE:

I DO NOT DO VALUE ($$$’s) APPRAISALS! There are way too many variables: condition, location, time of year, present trends in stein collecting, local (and now national) economics; but most of all = prior expectations by the owner, are among the reasons!

I have for over a year now placed these short “notifications” at the bottom of each page! It is now obvious to me the general public never gets that far before wanting to ask me a question on beer stein dollar values. So I have had to move them forward as I am getting tired of copying them and sending them back to people as an answer to their “stein value” questions. This was meant to be an informational web site only.

NOR WILL I KNOWINGLY DO ASSESSMENTS for the future selling of steins on auction sites such as eBay, etc. Go to the web site for “Stein Collector’s International” and click on “Stein Talk,” someone there might help you. I just do not have the time! My web site was really started as an informational site for beginning beer stein collectors that would be looking for the info and not the general public. This site has its own search engine [top right on each page!] SO if one puts in “Wood Steins” or “Hand painted steins,” it will give one a list of all the pages that has that subject matter within it.

STILL WISH TO CONTACT ME ABOUT ANY INFORMATION ON THIS SITE?  EMAIL:  STEVE (STEPHEN)  = thevirginian@cox.net

 A fairly well known pewter stein, server and beaker maker. Kayserzinn was in business from 1862 to 1925.  They also made “Jugenstil” objects of daily use, such as candlesticks, ashtrays, lamps, beakers, vases, tea and coffee sets. In 1862 the Dusseldorf based Kayser family, already in the tin industry, opened a foundry in the Bockum district of Krefeld, Germany. The firm reached its maximum size in 1899 with a workforce of 400.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

 

They started their mold numbering  system with model #4000 in 1894. All objects were marked this way, either in a circular or oval frame, or horizontally. The last, number “4999” was produced in 1925.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

To this date, all I have seen is serving steins and a mug or two. Any 1/2  or 1 liter “regular sized beer stein” has escaped me. [Steve’s note: Sometime the protective coating they put on their wares oxidizes from underneath and it is ‘a bitch’ to get off should you wish to clean and polish your piece.]
