From the late-1800s up to the beginning of World War I some of the most elegant and colorful regimental steins were produced for Kaiser Wilhelm II's cavalry regiments. Each stein portrayed the unique uniform colors, owner, service dates, and fellow servicemen of the regiment. These steins represent a time of military fashion that disappeared during World War I. The steins presented in this book are organized by cavalry service branch, beginning with the heavy cavalries of Prussia and Saxony, followed by the Hussar and Uhlan (lancer) regiments, and finishing with representative steins of the Mounted Rifle (J?er Zu Pferde) and Dragoon regiments. Each stein is well illustrated in large color photos. This book provides an accurate collector's reference for cavalry regimental steins of the Kaiser's time.
