I purchased this german beer stein and wanted to know what the E.bay stamp on the underside is. I was told this was a german stein and with the DSM & DRM stamps in the lid I was sure it. Just want to make sure that E.bay stands for.
Three pictures attached.
Any help is appreciated.
I found this interesting tidbit of information:
Bay Keramik: Started by EDUARD BAY in 1933; note that it's not correct that Bay stopped art pottery production in 1971; some art production continued into the 1980s, including some striking works....and some not so striking. Bay's best known designer was Bodo Mans, and it's common for many items to be attributed to him just because the name is known, but be sure those attributions are documented, not simply assumed. Bay was one of the largest producers and made some very good designs. They also made some rare specialty glazes that are utterly fantastic. However, they also produced a huge amount of kitsch, tourist ware and designs of questionable aesthetic value.
It may not apply but I thought it was quite a coincidence.
Thank you Molly!
