German Infantry Reservist Regimental Stein Reg. No. 142 98/1900 For Sale
You are offerding on a German infantry Reservist/Regimental beer stein. This stein is marked approximately"7. Bad. Inf. Reg. No. 142 in Kuhlhausen ??? 98/1900." There are various other writings on the sides of the stein including a roster of names on either side of the handle and the size marking "0.5" near the top with a horizontal line immediately below. The majority of the stein's decoration is quite flat and smooth without much to feel from running your finger over them, however are quite a few detailsthat are raised to the touch and appear to have been added after he initial painting for added effect.
The sides of the stein features numerous markings that presumeably apply to the specific unit of which the reservist was a member and there are is a pair of scenes from an infantryman's life on either side of a banner featuring a floating crown, some flags, and some more unit identifications. The lid has a vine/leave type design with a seated infantryman as a finial, he has his rifle resting between his legs and against his should and is holding up what appears to be a canteen, perhaps in a toast. The thumblift appears to be a Prussian Eagle holding a banner beneath itself. The lithophane appears to be the soldier saying goodbye to his wife, about to leave with the others, or perhaps a group of soldiers thanking a woman for her hospitality.
The stein's paint seems to have been applied slightly akilter with some of the designs not quite straight with respect to the stein and to eachother and some of the paint has been worn off in places, however the color in the scenes portrayed is quite vivid. The lid shows som signs of repair, the seat the infantryman is on looks to have been broken off at one point and the lid appears to have been reattached to the hinge/thumblift. There is also a chip in the rim of the stein itself and there is what looks like some crazing on the bottom. There is a very small amount of wiggle where the strapjoins the handle. This item has not been cleaned.
Item is approximately 11" tall and 4 1/2" in diameter at the base.
