This listing is for 1 pre-WWI German reservist regimental beer stein. 4th Battalion, 58th Regiment, Minden Germany.
It is genuine, no reproduction here! Not cracks in porcelain or dents to pewter. You can feel the raised, tiny hand-painted buttons on the uniforms.
Reservist's name is on front and company roster under handle. Please ask for any additional pictures or info. I will add higher resolution pics shortly.
This particular artillery mug has all of the bells & whistles; "fuse" top unscrews to reveal a green cut glass crystal that makes the lithopane in the bottom look like a kaleidoscope. Lithopane is common soldier & sweetheart.Fancy copper painted "rotating bands" compliment artillery shell theme. Top/finial is a 2 man crew & cannon, thumb-lift is appropriate North Rhine/Westphalia Eagle. Please see my other listings for similar period items.
