Regimental Stein 4th Bavarian Infantry Regiment 1912-14

Marzi & Remy - mold 992

From the collection of Walter Swett

The circular hole in the lion's head would indicate to me the stein once had a Stanhope, which unfortunately has been lost to history.

Es liebe hoch das Regiment das sich mit Stolz das 4. Nennt
Wer fern vom lieben Heimatland, in Metz an Frankreich Pfand
Wer Deutsches Land hat treu bewacht, hat als Soldat was mitgemacht.

I love the regiment that proudly calls itself the 4th
Those who are far from their dear homeland, in Metz at France's pledge
Anyone who has faithfully guarded Germany has done something as a soldier.
