Twentieth-century, German-style ceramic stein plays the Stein Song when the embossed jug is raised. Three-panel design shows two country cottages, and three men where the musician plays for two drinking pals who are smoking pipes.
The Stein Song was a 1930 American #1 song, composed before World War II. This tuneful university drinking song has chants including: 'To the trees, to the sky, to the Spring and its glorious happiness To the youth, to the fire, to the light that is moving and calling us To the gods, to the fate, to the rulers of men and their destinies To the lips, to the eyes, to the girls who will love us someday'
No chips or marks. Still plays perfectly with a wind-up mechanism on the base. 21.5 cm tall x 12 cm wide
