Dillingen is in the area Donau nach Munchen. There were 40 soldiers garrisoned there at theDillingen Gefangen Lager on Christrmas 1915.
Stein is in very good condition, with wear to the transfer of the Kaiser on front; likely due to cleaning as the owner clearly used this stein. The lid and stoneware stein are in superb
