Only issue, is what appears to be a missing pike or banner in the rider's right hand. Also, a bit of play/slop at the hinge/strap. Not an issue whatsoever as the lid sits perfectly flush when the stein is at rest. The horse head finial has a clear stanhope (no picture). The lid is quite interesting in that, besides the horse rider finial top, there is a wrap around scene of of a cavalry charge as the central image with two side images of men taking up positions in the flank.
Finally, the body has a main central image of one soldier on horseback, Reservist Kissler. Below the rider are 3 small oval portraits - the central one is of the last German Emperor Wilhelm II, left portrait displays a crown above a stylized R W and right is the German flag of that era. The years of service 1911 - 1914 and 5. Flanking the central image are 4 side scenes, two on the right: top scene is of a Hussar dismounted from horse and kissing his wife / gf and bottom scene is of infantry man firing from behind a berm and/or prone position; two side scenes on the left: top scene is of a cavalry charge and bottom appears to be a group of hussars scouting.
A few examples of some of the text on the stein (and translated to English). Wenn Husaren patroullieren und den starksten Feind aufspueren. " translates to "When Hussars are out on patrol and seek out the strongest enemy." translates to "In remembrance of my service time. Die Trompete ruft zum Scheiden.
Drum mein Maedchen lebe wohl. " translates to "The bugle blows and we must part.
