Imperial German beer stein of Reservist Kaiserman, who served from 1896-1898. One panel depicts a Fraulein (Madchen) holding the tail of a billy goat upon which rides Reservist Kaiserman. The shoulderboard of the regiment is shown on the front surrounded by martial items (weapons flags etc.). The stein has no flaws. The lithopane shows a young man standing by his seated mother.
Does anyone know why Kaiserman is riding the goat, and why the Madchen is holding its tail???
