An Artillery Shell Beer Stein (Item WWI 11-4 & MRBSTEIN 2-1)

DESCRIPTION: This stein is not made from an actual artillery shell; it is fashioned in pewter to look like one. It is 8" high with a bottom diameter of 3 ¼". It has a raised Iron Cross as its central design surrounded with a leaf design framing. The thumbuft features “Germania” with her sword of Bismark and the Prussian Holhenzollern crown held high. A very nice momento of the Great War. 100% original.

PRICE: SOLD

Regimental Reservists Beer Stein (Item MRBSTEIN 2-2 & KSTEIN 2-8)

DESCRIPTION: This is one of the nicest steins in the collection. It is an artillery model with vibrant colors. It belonged to a Reservist Siegmann, interestingly. This would mean Victorious Man. It is of the usual and traditional size and has the pewter lid with the two artillerymen greeting each other while having a friendly toast with beer steins raised. The eagle on the thumb rest has the guard star clutched in his beak. Siegmann served in the 2nd Battery of the teaching units (Lehr.Regt.) of the Field Artillery marksmanship School in Juterbog 1901-1903. Interesting, Juterbog had always been an instruction center for the German military elite. Before WWII there was an Art of War Institute there where SS officers were trained. The SS Sonderkommando Juterbog units were formed here. The stein is in perfect all around condition and of course it has the names of all the reservemen listed down the rear where the handle is located. At the stein's bottom is a beautiful lithophanne scene of two Bavarian lovers’s dressed in Bayriche trachten as they embrace. Just about one of the nicest steins we have handled.

Rare Metlach Beer Stein (Very Unusual!) (Item MRBSTEIN 2-3)

DESCRIPTION: Here is one of the nicest historical panoply I have ever seen on a stein. It has scenes of battles from the time of the immortal Frederick the Great. The stein commemorates the soldiers of the German state of Württemberg from the 18th century to the 1870-1871 Franco-Prussian War. Four years earlier Württemberg had fought against Prussia allied with Austria and now joined it in the war against the more ancient enemy, France. The stein shows the 18th-century Württemberg soldiers advancing against the forces of Napoleon. Seen also is the bust portrait of King Frederick Wilhelm III and the battle honors appear in a column running down the side; Borodino, Bautzen, Smolensk, etc. On the other side are the battle honors of the Württemberg army in the 1870 conflict with a bust portrait of King Charles I of Württemberg. On each of the earlier and later kings are the various colors and flags and standards of Württemberg throughout the wars it participated in. The pewter lid has the royal crests and arms of Württemberg, while the thumb lift has the lion with the state crest or seals similar to ones seen above. In the middle, the set of battle honors feature the Prussian eagle that dominates the design on the bottom of the stein is the castle Metlach marks plus the “Nr. 2221” and patent-protected mark. This is a great and rare stein, and a great investment.

PRICE: $950.00; Special Stein sale reduces this very rare stein to $785.00

Regimental Reservist Beer Stein (Item MRBSTEIN 2-4)

DESCRIPTION: This stein was owned by a reservist named Diesbach, who was a Gefreiter (private) in the “1. Esk. 2. Dragoon Regiment Nr 21.” stationed at Bruchsal from 1901-1904. It is one of the finer regimental steins we have ever had, with vivid coloration; the names of his comrades listed down the back of the stein are a bit fuzzy with age (well over 100 years), but the colors on the front scenes are spectacular where the scene of a mounted dragoon is supported by scenes of arms, flags and standards, and weapons; you can see the charge of a dragoon regiment in action. There is also the usual scene of the hero as he bids farewell to his maiden. On the pewter lid is a dragoon rider on his steed, while the thumb lift has the eagle symbol of the German state of Baden. The lithopone bottom has the usual scene of der Abschied, the farewell of the soldier to his beloved as he departs to fight for his Volk und Vaterland! Many patriotic sayings adorn the body of this superior stein. With the pewter top the stein measures about 12 inches high.

PRICE: Price $795.00; The Special Stein Sale reduces this Great stein to only $650.00

Regimental Reservist Beer Stein (Item MRBSTEIN 2-5)

DESCRIPTION: This is a great example of a regimental beer stein: a classic and completely text-book type. It belonged to a Gefreiter Thomas, who was attached to the 45th Hessian Infantry Regt. 8th Company Named for Prince Carl. This was the 118 Division stationed at Worms probably about 1905 to 1907 and similar to the other stein from the same regiment. That can be seen on page one at MRBstein 1-12. This stein is a little bit unusual in that the names of his regimental Kameraden are stacked on the right and left of the central theme, which shows the crown and the 118th regimental devise. Usually these names would appear on the back flanking the stein’s handle. The scenes show the Soldaten at camp and at military maneuvers. On top of the pewter lid is a figure that depicts a helmeted infantry soldier, while the thumb lift shows the crowned lion of Hesse with shield. The lithopone scene in the bottom is not the usual soldier with maiden. Instead, it has a scene of three men seated at a table either having dinner or playing cards (unusual!) There are patriotic sayings here and they’re all over this gorgeous stein. It measures 10 ½ inches high including the pewter top.

PRICE: Price $780.00; With our Special Stein Sale this one gets reduced to only $675.00

Prism-Top German Reservist Beer Stein (Item MRBSTEIN 2-6)

DESCRIPTION: These prism-top beer steins are fairly rare as there are just not as many of them as the figural pewter tops and in their day I’m told that they had cost significantly more than the more standard types. This one is quite nice and colorful having belonged to a Württemberg dragoon by the name of Abendschein, who was attached to the Dragoon Regiment Queen Olga 1 of the Wurt. Regt. Nr 26 stationed at Ludwigsburg 1899 to 1902 and on the top ring it says roughly translated: “the proud cavalry is ready early or late,” and at the bottom are other military-inspired sayings including the phrase: ““When the dragoons attack even the strongest enemy loses.” There is another that says basically: “When the trumpets call and the drums roll then it’s good-bye my maiden dear.” All in all the stein is perfect except it can be seen that the lid was resoldered on at one time, but the repair is tight and not distracting. The bottom has the typical lithophane scene visible upon holding it to the light. This is an excellent dragoon stein.

PRICE: $800.00; Special Sale reduced to $675.00.

Prism-Top Reservist’s Beer Stein; Austria–Hungary (Item MRBSTEIN 2-7)

DESCRIPTION: As we stated in the article above these particular style beer steins are quite a bit rarer than the ones with figural pewter tops. In their day they did cost more than the more standard types. This particular one is an exceptional example among these scarce types and it is in perfect mint condition, and seldom, if ever, do you see one from an Austria-Hungary regiment rather than the usual German. This one belonged to a reservist from the 13th Infantry RGT. Franz Josef, the first Kaiser of Austria and Apostolic King of Hungary 11th Company quartered at Ingolstadt-Eichstätt from 1912-1914 (near the eve of the First World War). The body of the stein is typically Bavarian showing the likeness of King Ludwig III of Bavaria. No doubt, the infantry soldier who owned the stein had to use this style stein, but he made sure the 13th Franz Josef shield was prominently displayed beside the Bavarian colors and the rim below the tip makes it quite clear what regiment he belonged to. All over the face and sides of the stein are beautiful scenes of army life with appropriate sayings. Down the backside on each side of the handle are the names of the men of the regiment including the name of the stein’s owner: a soldier named “Wust.” Around the band embracing the pewter section of the stein’s lid are the words (translated) that spell out boldly: “Brothers, toast with the glasses to a long life to the reserve men.” The lion-thumb lift depicts the great beast while brandishing the Bavarian shield. The inside of the pyramid-shaped prism enclosure are scenes from Ingolstadt. This city is in the center of Bavaria. The long military history of this once-walled medieval city is noted and more than any other city in Germany, Ingolstadt had numerous military training centers throughout the time of the Reichs. It looms obvious that some of the men of the Austrian armed forces were trained here and that, I believe, is the reason for the amalgamation of the two reservist motifs on the stein. Most interesting! The bottom of the stein when held up to the light while peering into the stein’s interior has the typical lithophane scene of the Auf Wiedersehen as the soldier bids his sweetheart “goodbye” as he departs for his military duty. The condition of this stein is absolutely superb! This is a literal treasure from a better age and a glorious military past. Deutschland, Deutschland über alles!

Military Beer Stein from Mecklenburg-Fürth (Item MRBSTEIN 2-8)

DESCRIPTION: The reservist Stubenvoll was in the 3rd company of the 21st Bavarian Infantry Rgt. Named Friedrich Franz W. Mecklenburg-Fürth. There is an interesting saying around the top lip. It says: “Whomsoever has served his time, he deserves a full (Krug) ‘stein’ of beer.” He served from 1909-1911. The stein has all the colorful pictures of the troupe’s doing its thing with two Kameraden supporting the picture of the Bavarian and Mecklenburg rulers and a colorful picture of the little town of Fürth. The Bavarian blue and white colors show up as ribbons top and bottom. The lithophane bottom bears the usual soldier saying a farewell to his sweetheart as he goes off to his company. This can be observed when the stein is held up to a light and looking down the well to the bottom of the stein. The pewter lid bears the likeness of an infantry soldier who stands guard along with the Bavarian lion while the ornate thumb lift has the crowned Bavarian lion symbol holding a shield. The lid is a bit shaky as many of the old steins are, but it isn’t going anywhere (quite stable!). The roster that is usually seen on each side of the grip or handle is not there. This was not an oversight; this is the way many of them were in fact ordered. A roster of the names cost more from the supplier. This is a very special stein with a very special price as put forth by the consigner: a true bargain.

PRICE: $475.00

Magnificent Reservist Stein in Larger Size from Regiment Queen Olga 1. Württemberg (Item MRBSTEIN 2-9)

DESCRIPTION: This is one beautiful stein and is large by far than the normal reservist stein. It is from the 7th Company of Grenadier Regt. Königin Olga (1. Württembergisches) Nr. 119 stationed at Stuttgart, 1904-06. It has a portrait picture of Wilhelm II of Württemberg flanked by soldiers and surmounted with the crest of the Royal House of Württemberg. Down the back of the stein on each side of the handle are the names of the men of the regiment. The owner of the stein is shown on the front and his name is Tambour Kinderer. The flamboyant bright pictures and colors are astounding and detailed. The thumblift again has the Württemberg crest and the figural top has a grenadier holding a cup of cheer as he salutes the regiment. The pottery section of the stein measures eight inches tall and the lid measures four more inches making it a little over a foot high; taller than other examples of this style reserve stein. It’s in perfect condition throughout and one of the finest beer steins we have been able to offer.

PRICE: $750.00

Fine Regimental Beer Stein from the 1 Bad. Leib. Gren. Regt. NR 109 Karlsruhe 1899-1901 (Item MRBSTEIN 2-10)

DESCRIPTION: This is a pretty stein that belonged to a Grenadier Schnatz of the Badisches Leib-Grenadier-Regiment (Baden Life Grenadier [Guard] Regiment) Nr. 109 at Karlsruhe. There is a beautiful frontal design showing the crown of Baden that surmounts various regimental standards and a shoulder board from an officer’s tunic. This also shows an army trumpet surrounded by the colors of the nation and Baden. Quite colorful, not faded at all. On the back near the handle are the names of all the men of the regiment. The thumblift is fashioned in the form of the Baden griffin. The national eagle surmounts the top of the pewter lid. The lithophane normally found on the bottom of these steins in this case is extremely hard to view, but is there showing a man and a woman at a table. (Völkisch!) The pictures are bordered top to bottom with a lovely band done in “Wilhelmesque” style. The stein is in perfect condition throughout and very unusual with the Imperial Eagle lid device. Baden steins are fairly scarce.

PRICE: $550.00
