WWII period appropriate liter beer stein (the actual German word is "bierkrug"). These are hard to date, but this is most likely wartime or earlier as it is marked "1L" on the front rather than near the handle. Fair, still usable, condition. It has some imperfections, uneven color and speckling. There are some chips in the handle and one on the rim. There is a slight gouge along the bottom. These are cosmetic and do not effect function. Measures approx. 7 1/4" tall and the bottom diameter is 4".
