    Rare Mettlach Deutsche Reichs Post Stein. 9" tall. A visually stunning half-liter stein featuring a large Imperial eagle with the postal service gold bugle in its mouth, mail bag clutched in one talon and parcel in the other. This colorful stein is ornately decorated in a floral pattern reminiscent of the art deco style. Banners criss-cross the stein with the caption "Postmanns Heil". The pewter thumb lid is in the form of an Imperial eagle and the pewter-rimmed lid features a porcelain center with a gold postal horn symbol and the caption "Deutsche Reichs Post". The bottom displays the Mettlach abbey trademark, "GESCH√úTZT" marking, a U.S. patent office mark, form number 1856, and 1908 date. There are no cracks or chips and the stein is in excellent condition.
