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

EDITOR’S NOTE: I am 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 too 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 you could do;  thereby helping  me 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!  OR DO ASSESSMENTS AS FOR INSURANCE OR ESTATES

FOR “POSSIBLE VALUES [PLEASE GO TO:  [1] the web site for “Stein Collector’s International”   @ http://www.steincollectors.org/ AND CLICK ON “STEIN TALK” -IN THE 2ND ROW —UPPER LEFT

OR  [2]: ANY OF THE RECOMMENDED STEIN DEALERS / AUCTIONEERS  AS LISTED ON MY “LINKS” PAGE.

 I just do not have the TIME  OR INCLINATION TO APPRAISE a bunch of steins  (I get about 10 to 20 requests every week  !!! 

 There are way too many variables ► their  condition,  location, the time of year, present trends in stein /drinking vessel collecting, local (and now national) economics;     but by far the “biggest problem  of all  in communicating  “so called values” are the prior expectations by the owner[s] ! (which are most  usually based on hearsay and old, old rumors provide by other family members!!

Also to be considered for any type of ‘value” comparison / or “value” research is  [1] from whom or where are anyone bought the piece  from or [2] where and what for any one piece sold for.  There is a vast difference between buying any given stein at a local auction, or an antique shop then buying the very same one from one of the  national or international stein auctioneers!!   Please remember, the major USA auction companies such as Soetheby’s OR Christies now charge over 22% (I think)  just for “the privilege” of buying something from them!…… 

 This  web site was  started as an informational site for beginning beer stein collectors that would be looking for the info and not the general public. 

but this site does have  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 should have that subject matter word within it. 

NOTE: I am sorry… but  this feature is case sensitive  (A “Word Press: feature, and  not MINE  !!!

STILL WISH TO CONTACT ME ABOUT ANY INFORMATION ►  ON THIS SITE ?  EMAIL:  STEVE (STEPHEN)  = thevirginian@cox.net  [2 -15]

“Saint George” [1] – Saint George was a Roman soldier and priest in the Guard of Diocletian, and who is venerated as a Christian martyr. In hagiography Saint George is one of the most  pictured saints in the Catholic, Anglican, Orthodox churches. He is immortalized in the tale of Saint George and the Dragon. The episode of St. George and the Dragon was a legend brought back with the Crusaders and retold with the courtly appurtenances belonging to the genre of Romance. By far the most revered Saint in the Christian world. He is the patron Saint of both England and Russia. Almost every stein maker made at least one stein to honor him (and to sell) including V & B Mettlach.
