Bir Bintang Baru tankard

Without a specific mark, and I’m a novice in this field, I’m trying to establish if this is authentic. The inscription means ‘New Star Beer’ in Indonesian and the ‘feel’ is aged, of around Dutch East Indies turn of last century.

Bintang is an Indonesian Beer Brand, owned by the Heineken beer company. The brand exists since 1957. Many similar beer mugs are around in the Netherlands, mostly with the Heineken brand on it. They were some kind of marketing product in the sixties/seventies. Probably not real Delftware, but made in Holland nevertheless.
