It is a fully signed Mettlach stein with the incised castle mark with several incised names and numbers on the base, please refer to photos. The stein is embellished with a beautiful painting of a Victorinan gentleman with a mustache waving his hat as he rides a high wheel bicycle. Around the scene on both sides are a heavily scrolled Victorian Design in sepia tones. It has a beautiful cover that is hinged and works perfectly. The entire stein is in excellent condition standing 10 1/4 inches tall to the top of the finial and 5 inches to the widest part of the handle. It weighs 2 1/2 lbs. This is an absolutely beautiful 2 1/2 litre stein that would make a handsome addition to a stein collection.
