Adding a Stein

Recommended Posts

A friend is down-sizing and I acquired this Regimental Stein from him. 120th  Infantry (2nd Wurttemburg) garrisoned in Ulm. Along with the soldiers name and fellow reservists being hand painted, it also has some hand painted details to the lithopane.

Excellent piece. The bird on the "Druecker" (pusher) is the "Ulmer Spatz" (Ulm sparrow) the landmark/symbol of the city Ulm.

Thank you! I knew the bird had some history with the city, but did not know what type of bird it was. I have dabbled in Imperial so I hope this does not lead to starting another new collection :)

Beautiful stein Dirk. I love these things, and feel they are one of the most under valued category of militaria out there. I mean where else can you find something so beautiful and colorful, and at the same time, historically captures the exploits of a particular unit with a list of names of all involved and the town they were assigned to?  And while I don't ever do it, you can drink beer out of it! I blinked and over the years amassed ten of these things and love every one of them. Thanks for sharing, yours is really nice. Kevin

Kevin thanks! I am trying to hold myself to just one. I remember in the 70's they were very pricey, but the market seems to have dropped off so I am glad I was able to get one within my budget.

Pulled out the IR 120 Stein yesterday and took some closeups of the paint, and finishing marks, and lithophane work

Lars thanks! Under the microscope I started to find hand painted details that I had not noticed before.

Even better up close Dirk. So much to look at on these. I am still a fan!
