German Regimental Military Beer Stein 1902-04 10.5 2 lbs ANTIQUE Excellent
German Regimental Military Beer Stein. Lithophane can’t make out the scene, any help is appreciated! Vivid colors, appears hand-painted. Height about 10 1/2 including lid. Porcelain portion 6 3/4″ high, 3 1/8″ diameter top, 4 1/2 diameter base. Weighs 2 pounds 2.5 ounces. Looks like some paint wear around base, though may be imperfect application. Pewter topside has scuffs, scratches & is darkened with age. Pewter top underside is shiny with marks & shading. Lid seems a bit loose & wobbly, hinge is in proper alignment. Lid base is a bit out of round. The top finial is off-kilter with some bends to the base under wagon wheels. Overall the lid & finial needs adjustment & alignment by an expert. Zoom in on photos #6 & #12. As found, I just rinsed off dust, didn’t clean the pewter. I KNOW THERE ARE EXPERTS OUT THERE NOT EVEN TRYING TO TRANSLATE IT!
