1/2 L Old Antique German 6. Eisenbahn Regiment No 2 Berlin beer stein. This is an exceedingly fine and detailed specimen, with great color and presence, body is mint.
Named to a Richard Giebeler, the stein displays a vivid depiction of officers sharing a drink while seated at a table and flanked by another two soldiers - a locomotive is also depicted within an outline of a shield just above the two men drinking... The Eisenbahn were part of the Garde Korps and tasked with security and maintanence of the railways.
The thumblift is of a substantial eagle. Only very minor condition issues, a slight pewter tear where tang connects to the lid (only visible from the bottom of the lid/tang) and a very slight bend so the lid sits at a minimal tilt (as shown in the pictures).
The stein displays incredibly well and looks even better in person! Some of the text on the body. "Es lebe hoch das Regiment". Height : 8.75 tall from base to top eagle thumblift's wings. Width : 4 at base of body.
