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.

 COPPER BODIED  BARREL STEINS  WITH USUALLY BRASS STAVE HOLDERS (BODY RINGS)…OR VISE VERSA

Besides myself and one other member of the Gambrinus Beer Stein Collector’s Club there is no one I know locally who actively collect ‘Barrel Beer Steins,’ and the other collector  has limited himself to just getting pewter examples. So I recently picked up a nice copper piece from his “For sale or trade” table at a recent local meeting.

Yet when I see a collection that anyone has spend time and effort to create and knows all about the various pieces impresses me a lot. My mother and I once visited a collection of “Santa Clauses” in Delaware. The lady must have had over 1,000 Santas from all over the world, different material and all sizes and times made. Now I don’t and wouldn’t ever collect them BUT I was overwhelmed by the effort put forth. It was a splendid time for both of us.

I have noticed that since my lectures on Copper and Brass steins at various SCI chapter meetings  and Mini-conventions here in the USA, that within the last 10 years or so, interest in the Copper Barrel Steins (see examples far below)  has picked up a bit at the American stein auctions.

For new collectors or especially the home beer brewers like my son, this is an excellent way to have a nice fairly inexpensive collection of some really nice old pieces that will accent your brewing efforts.

 

!- MUG - MEXICAN COPPER - BRASS MUG  MARKJED ON BOTTOM  MADE IN MEXICO -WHO DA THUNK IT

As  stated before almost any country that had copper, hence brass, made these barrel shaped steins and mugs. This one is from  – and marked – “Mexico,” perhaps by a relocated German?   Based on the wear to the tin lining, I’d say this was Circa early to mid 1900’s. About 6 inches tall.

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

Rbarrel mug brass - 4 INCH PRE TEEN copper  NOT mexican -   iwhere MADE [Q]

barrel-mug, copper body with brass  rings;  4 inch , made for a “pre-teen” or a female perhaps. This one is unmarked,  and due to the construction of brass stave holders (brass bands, )I do not think it is Mexican.   And as I said  above all most every country in the world made them.

BARREL - STEIN -  RUSSIAN TANKARD - BARRELL lid doesn't fit

Above ▲. A pre- revolutionary Russian made example. As with most, The lid fits into the body. These were obviously the Russians most favorite type of drinking vessels as one sees a lot of them.

The Imperial Russian Coat of Arms in one shape or another, is found on most of the stamped marks on these steins. Most are not clear to read. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

SOS - BARREL  [RUS] NEEDS WORK - RDY

A somewhat different model but still Russian pre-revolution. Cleaned and polished by hand = mine! 

Notice again how the lid fits into the top of both of these Russian steins and not on it. This one shows a more typical type molded brass thumblift.

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

SOS - BARREL MUG  RUSSIAN [Q] COPPER AND BRASS

No marks were give with the photo of this piece. I would guess it is Russian just based on its well done thick metal  construction. The simulated flattened rivets add a nice touch.

Copper barrel stein. Russian. Ca. 1880 – 1914, with brass stave holders and a small brass” fill hole” plug, now on the front as the barrel is standing upright.

BARREL - COPPER - STEIN -  american made   -  compliments of  xx - xx engraved on star

Now having just said that “fill holes” on these are hard to find, here is an American example. Barely visible but there on the mid -section. Very well constructed. It is unusual in that it too has a lid that sits into the steins top (it is the only American example I have seen to do that.
