Customer Question
I'm looking for information...

I'm looking for information on an Austrian stein, MZ mark.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

This was brought back from WWII by my husband's father. My gut feeling is that this is something that was produced for the tourist trade but would like to know if it has any value.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

I saw an identical one on Ebay (identical in size/shape but different pattern) for $49. I believe it also had the mark of Durand or something like that.

If you crop the picture the smallest bit then save, it will reduce it enough to allow you to add.
