Think I ve seen those at stoner shops in Amsterdam
Fantasy item and way out there I figure.
Modern fantasy garbage with nothing at all to do with the Tr period.
Whatever its just an opinion.
That's not fantasy garbage, but it's not Third Reich period. That probably dates from around 1900, when such steins were very popular gifts, especially in fraternities.
Thanks for the info everyone
Skull steins were produced around 1900 but this stein has a painted surface. Original ones were bisque glazed porcelain or glazed stoneware.
The surface on this stein appears to be worn paint and the pewter thumb rest shows no patina at all. Cheap $hit.
See them come up on online auctions from time to time. I will have nothing to do with them, Saw one go for $750. YIKES! Talk about skeletons in your closet!!!

Reminds me of freemason toys. Or these religious "memento mori".
Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.
