Please see all the pictures for details and let us know if you have any questions. On January 18, 1871, Wilhelm I, King of Prussia, became the first Kaiser (Emperor) of Germany. Ten days later France signed an armistice and the Franco-Prussian War came to an end. On April 16th of the same year, a constitutional law was passed making every German male liable for military service, the only exceptions being: (1) members of ruling houses; (2) criminals; and (3) those deprived of their civil rights by courts of law. The five branches of the army were the infantry, cavalry, artillery, pioneer (engineer), and the military train. There were also technical service units such as Eisenbahn (railway), Telegraphen (telegraph), and Luftschiffer (airship). Volunteers for all units provided men for the Schutztruppen (colonial troops). The navy was a separate department, responsible only to the Kaiser. Reservists reported to their units in early October and the training was provided by the unit, as opposed to the American concept of using basic training centers. This system of reporting as a class and leaving with the same group lent itself to the concept of purchasing active duty remembrances, much as an American boy or girl would obtain a high school or college ring. The list of souvenirs was long and varied, including, but not limited to, steins, pipes, flasks, glasses, individual and group photos, certificates, demitasse cups and saucers, clocks, swords, bayonets, paperweights, and many others. The period of popularity extended from the mid-1890s until the onset of World War I. Almost all early examples came from Bavarian units. Steins with wartime dates also exist but the demands of the war in terms of men and material effectively ended the manufacture of regimental steins as we know them. Regimental steins of German manufacture also exist from units of the armies of France, Austria, Italy, and Hungary.
Unusual Large Antique German Beer Stein S. Gerz Gresrhenana Model #BB c. Description: This very unusual German beer stein is quite unusual for a German beer vessel. It was manufactured by S. Gerz – one of the most famous names in German beer stein production in late 1800s – early 1900s in a typical English manner. This squat form is quite common for the so-called “English brown jugs”, as well as applied decorations that were called “springs” by English manufacturers, showing characteristic English gentlemen-beer lovers. Such very distinctive beer vessels were made in the mid-1800s by Doulton Lamberth, Kishere Mortlake, Denby, etc. Even the pewter lid is made in a specific English manner with the English-style small hinge. It is most lakely made specifically for the British market market – I also know of some similar S. Gerz beer steins with the inscription on the stein, which is the main element of design, made in English. It is quite possible that the whole “Gresrehnana” brand was even created for the British market This technique is specific to S. Gerz and is called “Gresrhenana” – I guess S. Gerz hold a special patent rights on it that are indicated in Ges. Mark on the bottom. The bottom is also marked with S. The stein is in excellent flawless condition – a collector’s dream. Again, it is 6.5 tall to the top of the thumblift, 1.5 L capacity – large and impressive. Height: 6.5 in. Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing. Track Page Views With.
