Antique REGIMENTAL Artillery Lithopane Porcelain Beer Stein
A truly amazing piece of military history, an authentic german regimental porcelain beer stein for artillerist reservist Moritz, who served from 1904 to 1906. The lid is formed like the tip of an artillery shell and has an eagle on the lid holder, the decoration seems mostly handpainted, it has long lists of names on each side of the handle of the other people that reservist Moritz served with. The bottom of the stein has a beautiful and detailed lithopane, depicting a soldier and his wife.
Condition: The beer stein is in very good condition, with two tiny cracks at the bottom on the lithopane (you can clearly see them on the picture of the lithopane), some of the decoration shows signs of wear and the lid holder is slightly loose, but other than that, it has no other defects.
Dimensions: The beer stein is 24.5cm tall (approx. 9 4/5 inches).
