EDITOR’S  NOTE: Requesting assistance from EBAY, ETSY, AND OTHER WWW ANTIQUES SELLERS. 

My web site is not just a blog…my site was created for informational purposes to help combat all the mis-information, misnomers, myths and just out-right “bull crap” that has been promoted about beer steins, etc. for at least the last 100 or so years. I do not mind you using any of my published information, but would you please give my site the proper credit it is due!!  (www.steveonsteins.com)

I have worked over 6 years providing all this and  as you know it is free! I believe that proper credit is the least that one could do;  thereby helping me to promote my site and getting  good information about drinking vessels out to the public!  Thank you very much;

Stephen L Smith, Editor.

ALSO 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

x!-  BARREL - OLDEST VERSION WERE IN WOOD. German Wooden Beer Stein Barrel Type w - Wicker Bands c.1900  SA's

Wooden slated steins with wicker stave supports  / holders are perhaps the oldest and cheapest form of “Barrel Steins” that could be made.

It didn’t have to have the metal staves  holders as the inside would have been “pitched”  and that process would also help to hold the staves together. Examples  of wood and wicker steins can be found from just about every country in Europe and the USA where forests were rampant. Even so, if in good shape (and most are not) there are many collectors out there who relish these.

There are two reasons for this I think. The first  is  these are all considered “Folk Art” and the second is that they are also collectable under  the collecting category of “Treen.”  Therefore these beer steins end up having three collectors groups looking for prime examples.

ABOVE▲The cork and wood stein: All of the staves are still intact and most are tight one to another, even after years of heavy usage. Height is  9 inches. Diameter at base: 6.5 inches. One brass band is missing.  Circa 1900. [FWTD]

BARREL - BRANDY or SCHNAPPS  - 2

Detail of the barrel in cradle set with spout and “bunghole.”

“Bungholes” were first used on wooden barrels, and were typically bored by the purchaser of the barrel using a brace and bit. Bungholes can be bored in either head (end) of a barrel or in one of the staves (side). With the bung removed, a tapered faucet can be attached to aid with dispensing. When barrels full of a commodity were shipped, the recipient would often bore new bungholes of the most suitable size and placement rather than remove the existing bung. Wooden barrels manufactured by specialty firms today usually are bored by the maker with suitable bungholes, since the hobbyists who purchase them for the making of beer, wine, and fermented foods often do not have a suitable brace and bit. [Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bunghole]
