" Howitzer thunder is our greeting ". This is an authentic and striking Pre WW1 regimental artillery beer stein. The body is absolutely mint, the lid is also in tremendous condition with only a minor tear where the flange and lid meet, there is no slop or play with the lid. The horse Figural thumblift has a clear stanhope (no picture), and the rider seems to be directing a charge.
The lid is quite interesting in that the canon flanked by two artillery soldiers can pivot 90 degrees. The canon also has another little surprise, the ball on the end of the canon is attached to a still functional spring mechanism that can be used to launch match sticks.
The lid also displays a mortar shell in front and two artillery side scenes with canoneers and cavalry. Finally, the body has one central image of a man, Reservist Fr. Years 1908 - 1910 and 6.Avold are also displayed on the front. There are also 2 side scenes of artillery and cavalry units. The back of the stein has the entire roster, still showing very strongly. On some regimentals these rosters can be faded. Finally, the base has 5 smaller scenes with sayings too. Many sayings/expressions can be found on the body and lid, "Haubitzendonner ist unser Gruss" which I translated above is perhaps one of my favorite calling cards/expressions on these regimentals... After all, that is a heck of a greeting.
This is an exceedingly fine and detailed specimen. With great color and presence. Height : 12.5 tall from base to top of finial cannoneers.
Width : 4.3 at base of body. Let me know if you have any questions and thank you for looking. Added picture of pewter stress hairline tear. Added picture of canon barrel set to upright position.
