The stein has a series of four face cards representing each of the four suits, spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs. The fancy painted handle also features each of the suits as does the inlay lid. The thumb lift is in the form of a double acorn. The bottom of the stein features the Mettlach abbey mark and the date code of either "95" for 1895 or "96" for 1896, I cannot decide which.
The stein measures approximately 6 1/4 tall to the top of the pewter thumb lift. There are a couple of small chips on the inside of the inlay lid - see photos.
