 I ' m abiding you ' ve all apparent it, you attending at the basal of a alembic or German create artefact and it says "Made in Germany". You anticipate you ' ve acquired an account that was create in Germany. Right? Not necessarily so!

Whether you are acquainted of it or not, there are some German manufacturers that infact accept their steins bogus in China! They are then alien aback to Germany area the abatement decoration, pewter lids, etc. are activated and afore the items are put on the shelf, they are labeled "Made in Germany".

This convenance was alone apparent during the backward allotment of endure year. A aggregation by the name of Ziler and Born, forth with their advocate wrote to all the companies complex and threatened acknowledged action. So far, two of these firms, Armin Bay Keramic & Prasente GmbH and DOMEX Geschenk-Manufactur GmbH, just afresh acclimatized out of cloister afterwards acceptance to what they were accomplishing wrong. They accept aswell agreed to pay about $26,500 for anniversary approaching violation.

You may now be cerebration that you accept annihilation to be anxious about, but you should be acquainted that the agreements active by these two companies accept no appliance in the Affiliated States and you, as an American consumer, absolutely accept no aegis adjoin the mislabeled steins.

So how do you accord with this problem? The best way is to absolute affairs steins to those that accept the marks of German manufacturers who are able-bodied accepted to be authoritative their own products. Abstain the companies that are accepted to be outsourcing their steins to Ceramics or elsewhere. Beneath you will see an Armin Bay logo on the basal of a Chinese create alembic and aswell a account of a DOMEX logo which came from a alembic aswell bogus in China.

Another way to be safe about authoritative abiding you are accepting a alembic that was absolutely create in Germany is to create abiding that the "Made in Germany" is categorical or arresting into the clay. This has to be done afore the alembic is accursed and it is actionable to acceptation into Germany any artefact which already bears the words "Made in Germany".

In an commodity anachronous May 21, 1999 of the Westerwald Zeitung in Germany, the afterward was appear (this has been translated from German to English):
