Only condition issues worth mentioning: the pewter strap is loose - so there is a tiny bit of play (still sits perfectly flush if left at rest), there is a pewter tear where the tang connects to the lid and finally the finial cavalry rider is headless. The lid is quite interesting in that, besides the eagle thumblift, there is a headless horseman (some Halloween inspiration to be sure)!
Though not by design, his head has been lost to time. Finally, the body is fairly impressive with four side scenes and one main central theme displayed.The stein is named to a Reservist Schÿdzik who served his three years from 1909 to 1911. The litho is of an soldier and woman together. Just a small sample of the iconic and ever present phrases on this regimental stein (and translated to English).
