Since Alwin Kaiser was an engraver, he always engraved the dedication on the lid rim, as opposed to the usual stein body. It is unknown who applied the "Wappen".
In December 1920 Alwin Kaiser was listed in the "Index of Christian Businessmen and Craftsmen"
by the "German Nationalist Protection and Defiance Federation" as a recommended supplier to the detriment of any Jewish supplier.
