Pre WW1 German Souvenir of Service Bottle,Flask,Named,Imperial Navy,1892-1894
Introducing a prized rarity from our collection, a flask dedicated to a member of the Imperial German Navy, serving from 1892 to 1894. Bearing what seems like the name \"S-T-E-G-E\" in ornate calligraphy, this magnificent piece showcases the Navy anchor, reminiscent of the shoulder sleeve insignia, albeit slightly loosened due to age. The metal cover, exhibiting rust around the anchor and shovels, likely once sported a yellow hue, now faded and worn, while traces of red or orange paint on the lip where the tin pieces meet persist.
The meticulously hand-painted details, including the sailor\'s name, unit, and service dates, remain remarkably intact, despite the challenge of deciphering the elaborate German script. Letters hint at a possible battalion indication, such as \"F-R-O-M B-A-T,\" though further translation is advised, especially for the text left of the anchor and below.
The heart-shaped hole on the back unveils an enchanting scene within the bottle, humorously translating to \"Brunder pushes the glasses. Long live the reserve man.\" Perhaps depicting a toast or jovial drinking, this scene adds a delightful touch to the flask\'s narrative, a whimsical tribute to the honor bestowed upon the recipient.
Though scratches and paint loss adorn one side, the overall beauty and rarity of this piece shine through, making it a splendid addition to any curio shelf.
