    Hessian 11 Comp. Infantrie-Leibregiment Großherzogin 3. Großherzoglich-Hessisches Nr.117 1911/1913 Removable Lid Regimental Reservist Stein. A spectacular 12½" tall porcelain regimental stein named to "Reservist Schömbs" whose name also appears in the regimental roster on either side of the handle. The beautifully decorated body features colorful patriotic scenes, a view of the regiment's home city of Mainz, portraits of Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig and Grand Duchess Victoria Melita, and the ubiquitous regimental shoulder strap. Incorporated into the outside edge of the handle is a smiling German soldier in relief, adding a unique element to the stein. The tall pewter lid has a soldier and lion finial and the thumb lift a lion with glass eyes. The top of the lid screws off to reveal a green cut glass setting. The lithopane features a sweetheart scene. The stein exhibits no cracks or chips and with the exception of the regimental roster which has faded a bit, the colors remain strong. Excellent condition.
