Default Regimental Stein-2nd LEIB-HUSAR Regt.

I acquired this stein from a friend who purchased it from the widow of the U.S. officer who brought it back from the war. When I saw it I recognized it as a pretty rare Prussian stein to a unit with a spectacular reputation.

It is a crockery type stein named to Reservist Volz who served in "4. Esk. 2. Leib Hus. Regt Koeniga Victoria d. Pruesen No.2 Danzig=Langfuhr 1907-1910" It stands an impressive 14 inches tall. The Hussar finial retains its lance and is in good solid condition. The very ornate stein body is perfect. The only slight deficiency is a slightly ill-fitting lid. As can be seen in the photo of the finial a WWI Prussian has been mounted below the stallion. I have chosen to leave it in place.

The roster contains approximately 36 names, including Volz in two columbs. Between them is a small skull insignia.

Those with an interest in Imperial German Resevist steins know that the vast majority originate from Bavarian units. To find a Prussian area stein is most unusual. To find a Death's Head Leib-Hussar stein is rare. Hope you enjoy, Thanks for looking. Bob

Great stein. Congratulations. I am happy to have an Imperial regimental stein to 9. Komp. 4. Garde Regiment zu Fuss. Berlin, 1906.08. Mine also has an ill-fitting lid, which is not uncommon.
