German Beer Steins/ Story Behind the Listings

A man and a woman in traditional German costume.
At one point in my father's life he told us he had everything he wanted and if he didn't, he would go buy it for himself. 

He was born in Germany and was very proud that he came to this country without knowing how to speak English and that during his life became a very successful businessman on Long Island New York.  Many, many people know Dieters -Hagen Inc. 

Left with the dilemma of what gifts to give him we started a collection of these lidded German Beer (Bier) steins. I remember them sitting on the top shelf of the bookcase in the front hall for many years - pretty to look at but never used.  

Time moves on and it now time to share these collectibles with a new family who will enjoy them as much as we did.
