The scene is of several monkeys with books about man and Darwin. The handle is the shape of a monkey too.
The lid is a three dimensional skull with crossed bones. The stein body has no chips or cracks. I believe that the inlay has a chip on the edge that was repaired.I think that this is a very unusual stein and makes a wonderful addition to any advanced collectors collection. Pictures are part of the description.
