Thanks Paul for posting this for me. Steins are not my thing and I've heard that fakes are out there so hoping some truly informed person can weigh in on this one. It would be nice to know one way or the other if it's good or bad and if good to know what it is all about.
Personally I like the picture and the inscription of the military bakery.

I am pretty sure it is a repo . Real ones don’t have the image at the bottom . All the little names should be hand painted and not transfers . Imo. Rob

The opposite is true actually. Need better pics to judge authenticity.

Many IG steins have lithopanes on the bottom of the stein. The lithopanes you do not want to see are the ones with nude women or pornographic images. Names of unit members were transfers and not painted on. The only name that would be painted is the owners around the rim of the stein. Additionally, his name should be on the list of unit names (I did not see his name on the rim but it appears to be engraved on the lid?? What is the rank? .

Have your friend rub his fingers over the transfers to se if the details such as buttons are painted on. Also look at the underside of the pewter lid, it should be a different shade from the exterior lid which has tone/tarnished over time.

Also from the pictures on the side of the stein, this appears to be for a Baker, which are among one of the rarer and more desirable steins.

IMO various individual details would be painted on - like f.e. years of service, name, sometimes company/eskadron. The main image would be a transfer.

Thanks KW2

That blows my theory out of the water, one lives & learns all the time.

Cheers Jack
