Mettlach is easily the best known name among manufactures of old beer steins, and to collectors the name is synonymous with quality and value. The company of Villeroy and Boch (V&B), is named from the village where it is located. The majority of steins produced by Villeroy and Boch are sought by today’s collectors and produced in this factory located on the Saar River in Western Germany. Founded in 1809 by Johann Franz Boch-Buschmann. The company Villeroy and Boch resulted from a merger with Nicolas Villeroy in 1836.
