Stoneware, handpainted raised relief decoration. The three panels on this stein each feature a castle from the life of King Ludwig II. Farthest to the left is Hohenscwangau Castle where Ludwig spent his early years; in the middle is Neuschwanstein Castle, Ludwig's most famous castle; and to the far right we have Linderhof Castle, the only castle actually completed during Ludwig's lifetime. This finely detailed stein features gold accents along the bulbed bottom and a border of small swans across the top. A conical pewter lid completes the stein.
