Fresh from a Washington D. Estate is a gorgeous, original circa 1890s German painted beer stein.

Stein measures 6.25 inches high, approximately 9 inches high with lid, and a diameter at the base of of nearly 3.7 inches. A few areas of light paint loss or smearing, most notably on the rabbit. What to say about this beauty? It shows four hunters and a Jack Russel hunting dog, with one of the hunters holding up a bunny. The hunters are set against a vast landscape with a forest, lake and mountains beyond.

The handle is painted brown, to look like a wooden handle. Easily one of the best and elaborate steins I've ever seen, far more nuanced and ambitious than the vast majority of military steins I've seen. The item "STUNNING 19th c.
