    Hello, I was wondering if there was any provenance at all to these beer steins actually being Third Reich period SS items? I've seen them for sale a few times, but can never find out too much information on them. Thanks.

    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.

    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.

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