To be completely honest, I think this is one of the first typically German steins that we've ventured to offer. I just saw it and thought it was both an interesting and alluring piece. Dating to the 1890s I think, I've seen reference to this type as a gift to a retiring military officer, the pastoral scenes (I'm assuming) to represent what they have to look forward to in their retirement. I've even had a bit of trouble making out the script though did manage the first quote, it reads "Das Schonste Wappen in Dieser Welt Ist Der Pflug Im Ackerfeld" and roughly translates to "The most beautiful coat of arms in this world Is the plough in arable field". A fabulous piece though and includes the lithophane bottom, a romantic scene with man lying next to a seated woman. The pewter top is both ornate and bears an inscription with name, possibly the retiring soldier? Perfect for the stein collector and I'm offering it at my cost just for fun. Pristine condition, too, don't miss it!

Excellent condition. I see no flaws other than a bit of wear to the maroon paint along the bottom rim. See pictures for all measurements.
