The Latest Additions To My HB Stein Collection

These 2 steins are the latest additions to my HB Stein Collection. They date from 1890's and are both numbered. The steins were made by Ludwig Mory (as seen in the picture) who was a popular maker in Munich, and whose business is still operational today by his descendants. The imprint on the body of the stein is to my knowledge the first style of HB Stein that had HB with the crown. Earlier styles had either just an etched HB or a crudely carved HB, but no crown.
