Customer Question

I have a beer stein , supposedly from Germany WWII. My uncle said he found it in a tavern and it was the only thing left standing. The year was 1947. It stands 6 ft 1/2 in. There is no top. I would like to know its history, where it is from and its value. Thank you.

If you are unable to read it the dates on the stein are 1898 and 1901. Also 1/2 L. I would like a translation as to what the inscriptions say as well. Thank you.

Correction. It stands 6 1/2 inches. :)
