1850 Dresden Beer Stein

I was given this Beer Stein as a gift from a German friend in 1981 while serving in the military in Germany. My friend indicated that it had been in his family since before the war. It appears to be handpaited as their are brush marks and it is in exceptional condition.

Your stein postdates 1850, the marking on it dates about 1870-1890. It's a nice piece though, but values have taken a bit of a dive for Victorian ceramics in recent years, this one might go for $150.00 to a collector.
