This stein is another example of a Mettlach stein, manufactured by Villeroy & Bosch in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
7.75 inches tall
The inscription on the lid of this stein reads "Gut Heil! Musketier Schrotter Inf. Regt. 3. Comp. Freisschiessen 18. 8. 1899," and translates as "Soldier Schrotter Infantry Regiment 3, Company Freisschiessen, August 18, 1899." This suggests the stein may have belonged to or was given to a soldier in the infantry.
