There are a series of 3 images within gothic archways depicting various scenes of men drinking and playing games. The phrase on the stein in German translates to "In accordance with custom and German tradition, drink what is clear, speak what is true" and Only where there is drink and food, one sings, jokes and talks, guests will always come because no troubles will bother them. The thumb lift features the Munich Child and there is an inlay lid. The stein is 20 tall to the top of the pewter thumb lift.There are no chips, cracks, hairlines or pewter damage. There is an ID on the bottom from a former owner. For anyone collecting German beer steins or interested in German steins, I would highly recommend joining SCI, as you will receive publications and can communicate with members from all over the world about steins. There are also past publications online, where you can research steins through a number of scholarly articles. Please contact with any questions.
