1/2L Railway (Eisenbahn) Pre-WW1 Antique German Regimental Beer stein - Train lid with Imperial eagle thumblift. This is an authentic and striking Pre WW1 regimental beer stein. The body and lid are in excellent condition overall, the only knock is small repaired base chip on the underside. The lid is quite interesting in that, besides the Imperial Eagle thumblift there is a train engine at the top!
Finally, the body has a lot going on. The text along the top of the body reads as follows, Eisenbahn-regiment nr. The central image displays a train engine along with a winged train wheel too and of course the reservist... There are 5 more scenes: one at the top that wraps all the way around and displays elevated tracks with a train chugging along (also text reads "Viadukt bei Luga, 1909"), then 4 smaller side scenes displaying soldiers working on the tracks, riding a train and what also appears to be a barracks! The stein is named to a Reservist Bohm who served his three years from 1909 to 1911.
Iconic and ever present phrases on this particular railway regimental stein (and translated to English). Breite Stroeme, Sumpfge Gruende, halten Deutschland's Heer nicht auf, Rasch wir schlagen feste Bruecken und darueber gehts im Siegeslauf. Wide rivers, marshy grounds, do not hinder Germany's Army.
Quickly we put up strong bridges and cross over them in a flush of victory. In remembrance of my service time.
This is an exceedingly fine and detailed rare railway regimental, with great color and presence. Less than 1% of German army units were railway battalions.Height : 10 to top of train lid. Width : 4.25 at base.
