Military Regimental Beer Steins

The Ultimate German Collector's "Collectable"

My customers should go first to steincollectors.org to read the excellent article written by R.Ron Heiligenstein, SCI Master Steinologist and author of Regimental Beer Steins 1890-1914. This is the November Stein of the Month and beautifully describes the definition of a Regimental Beer Stein. If any one thing captures the spirit of Imperial Germanys Armed Forces in beautiful fashion it has to be the Regimental Beer Stein. Whether made from porcelain or pottery the Regimental Beer Stein was the symbol of patriotic loyalty to the fatherland, or to a regiment from one of the various lands in the German empire. The regimental beer steins came in with the upsurge of German nationalism and pride in the success in the Franco-Russian War and a young popular emperor Kaiser Wilhelm II began an expansion of Germany’s military system in 1888. Military service was originally for men 17 to 45 years of age. The tour of active duty was 3 years for Calvary and Navy, and 2 years for others. Upon completion of their active duty these men became reservists. It is the reservists and not the professionals who carried souvenirs such as steins, pipes, flasks, beakers, cups, swords and many other items. All reservists reported to their units in October and all ”Graduated” with the same “Class” in September. The cost of regimental steins depended on their uniqueness. Some of them for example might be two or three times the cost of normal military commercial steins. But pride in their class and unit was downright enormous and in cases when it has been recorded all the reservists earned steins. Regimental Steins were usually produced in porcelain, occasionally they were of pottery or stoneware or very rarely of glass or pewter. The decorations generally depicted typical training scenes, portraits or rarely combat scenes. The glazes on these steins included great varieties of color and brilliance. This art for the most part has been lost and cannot be duplicated. (A lost art!) The decorations were primarily transfer decorated, that is the designs were printed on silk screened decal that was put on the body, touched up and hand fashioned, then fired. The pewter work on most regimental steins is both elaborate and meaningful. The lids, the finials, thumb lifts are symbolic of the areas, scenes or national emblems and human figures, cannons, helmets, crowns, eagles, griffons, glass tops, etc. All are seen on these magnificent mementos. Sayings that are catchwords for the units are often included such as “Cannon Thunder is Our Greeting” orwhen we the Guarde ď Corp attack it strikes fear into the hearts of the enemy”. Most porcelain steins have lithophane bottoms mostly depicting a soldier and maiden, home scenes, nature, and outdoor scenes, busts of Kaiser William, King Ludwig and Naval Scenes. Lithophane scenes were translucent pictures seen when holding a stein bottom up and looking inside. The meaning for this was basic in that it was used to provide different thickness to the porcelain creating a variation in the translucent nature of that portion of the steins bottom. Providing a scene so as to be collected by beer drinkers. It was an invention of the late 1880’s. Hussars, dragoons, foot soldiers of the infantry, guard regiments, grenadier, engineers, sailors, train battalion soldiers, machine gunners, artillerymen all loved these steins and brought them forward.
“Vorwarts”
The German Regimental Beer Stein will forever be the sacred spirit of the age of Imperial Glory

Pottery Type Regimental Reservist Beer Stein (Item MRBSTEIN 1-11)

DESCRIPTION: This is a reservist beer stein that once belonged to a soldier named Luther Reichert who was stationed from 1896 to 1898 at the garrison near Karlsruhe in the 2nd Company of the 8th Baden Here is a winner personified! It is the rare pottery type tall 14 ½ inch model with raised semi relief figures. The lid is where the very unusual aspect of the piece comes in. The figures with cannon are often found on this type of stein but this one also has a calvary man on horse galloping as a thumblift. This we have never seen before in 40 odd years of handling these steins. Highly unusual but it is original and nothing has ever been changed. This stein was owned by a reservist whose family removed his name from the banners. Why??? Probably they were embarrassed that they sold this important family memento.  Possibly in the post war years when folks were desperate due to the hard horrible war’s finish. The stein lid has the soldiers manning a cannon on a platform. This conical top emulates an artillery shell with its various numbers below this. Many scenes of artillery exercises. The sides of the handle have the names of all the reservists in the company which was the 1st Battery of the 2nd Lothian Field Artillery Regiment No. 34 stationed at Metz. This man served from 1910 to 1912. Beautiful scenes of the artillery mans life in the service are shown in nice clear illustrations with patriotic sayings. This is a ½ liter stein and has as it’s central legend (translated) “Brothers lift the glass (stein) and salute  the lives of the reserve men”  “Bruder stolz die glaser an hoch der leben das rervemann!”  On the handle is a face of a soldier with the words Reserve hat ruh! (The Reserve is Ready) A beautiful picture of a rider similar to the thumblift can be seen in a depiction of a horseshoe at the bottom center. This was a Calvary supported Field Artillery Regiment (the 2nd). A very rare and different stein.

PRICE: $1,300.00 You can’t imagine how rare this one is!

There are various other designs surrounding the prince such as helmet, drum, bugle, field pack and shield with the colors of Hesse and Prussia. The shoulder board of the 118th is also seen as the major theme. The lithophane bottom is a typical scene of the soldier with a  maiden.

Beer Stein from Badenfeld Artillery Regiment 50 at Karlsruhe (Item MRBSTEIN 1-15)

DESCRIPTION: This is a great beer stein from elite artillery Regiment Number 50 stationed at Karlsruhe. It belonged to Fahrer Battenfeld. It is 12 inches high from the bottom to the top of the upraised canteen held up by the soldier at the top of the lid. “Kanonen Donner ist unser Grüss.” This is the motto around the top of the ceramic portion of the Stein. This translates to “The cannons’ thunder is our greeting.” It is a very colorful stein with sharp vibrant tones. The only thing that stands between its being in perfect condition is that the lid has been repaired. It was professionally done and is only noticeable when inspecting the inside of the lid. The spike is also missing from the pewter soldier's head. Otherwise, it's in fine condition and a great-looking beer stein. It has the Baden griffin on the thumb lift, and it has a great lithopane bottom of the Jäger’s departure. The name of the former soldier-owner is seen at the front design over the 50th unit shoulder-board designation. He was as the title indicates, a Fahrer, or driver. He probably drove the vehicles that towed the cannon to the front lines. This is a really great beer stein and would grace an Imperial collection.
