    I found this at a local thrift store. It is stamped Germany in the bottom (which is pre WWII right; otherwise it would say west or east germany) as well as the numbers in photo below - but no maker's name?
    It also has a saying along the bottom but it's in German(I think)
    I thought it was unusual because it looks like a lady - possibly riding side saddle(!) - is with the men on a deer hunt?
    Can anyone tell me what I have?
    Thank you!

    Here's a clue from the internet as to maker...

    "The twisted-branch handle is a signature of the Girmscheid factory."

    Are they always signed? I'll look again - the Germany was very lightly marked into bottom & hard to see - maybe logo is there & I missed it.
    Thanks Debora

    Isn't a woman on a hunt unusual?

    Apologies. I forgot you wrote it was stamped Germany. So Germany the source. This is helpful:

    "However, as is true with the products of many of the early Westerwald factories, steins actually bearing a Girmscheid factory mark are the exception rather than the rule. Of more than 350 steins contained in the on-line Girmscheid catalog as this article is written, less than 10% display one of the known factory marks shown below."

    The link above will bring you to photographs that support this:

    "Handles
    Another excellent way to spot a Girmscheid stein is by looking at the handle. While Girmscheid, like most manufacturers, used of a fairly wide variety of handle designs, more than half of all Girmscheid steins employ a handle with a “twisted vine” design like those shown below. However, one needs to be careful when relying on this characteristic to identify a Girmscheid stein, in that nearly every Westerwald manufacturers made at least occasional use of similar handle designs. Nonetheless, where a handle has a twisted vine design, the first factory that should come to mind is Girmscheid."
