    Theodore Roosevelt: Tour-de-Force Beer Stein. We have never seen this 10" beer stein before and it is really a sight to behold. It has all the bells and whistles. It was apparently made in Germany and has an impressed mark on the base and near the handle of 243. The central design in the middle is a yacht, likely a participant in the America's Cup competition and a buxom young lady with outstretched arms (maybe the St. Pauli girl?) One side has a portrait of "Prinz Heinrich" (Prince Henry) and the other side has a portrait of "Pras. Roosevelt" (President Roosevelt). There are various floral motifs in the Art Nouveau manner. The bottom is encircled by three-leaf clover. All the designs are raised and brilliantly hand-painted. There is a iridescent glaze at the top border. Aside from a split in the metal band securing the top to the handle, it is in excellent condition.
