A German porcelain regimental stein commemorating the service of reservist Kupperling in the 11th Train Battalion at Cassel Germany from 1904 to 1906. Other surnames on the unit roster are painted on the sides. A lithopane bottom shows, against light, a reservist and fraulein against a village landscape. The pewter top is a bit loose at the joint and in its grip on the handle, has a slight warp along the rim and the stein was acquired with the horse flattened a bit but easily pulled back up (probably a fairly high lead content in the pewter alloy.) One of the struts under the horse is severed (see detailed illustration) but could be easily soldered by a metal specialist. Otherwise all good condition with no faults to the porcelain. Total height to top of the horse and rider finial, about 11 1/8 inches (28.26 cm)
