I recently acquired a stein in which the mountains in the background have faces on them. Hikers in the foreground. I’m sure most of you can get a visual on this stein. For whatever reason, I can’t seem to remember though what the faces were referring to. It seems like they could be electors? I’ve tried a brief Google search but don’t find anything. Can anyone comment on what these faces represent and does this stein have a commonly referred to name or nickname?
You should pay the small price for membership in The Beer Stein Library. I’ll let you get by again, but it can almost always answer your questions.
“The Hanke #1264 is called ‘Seven Electors on Lake Walen’. It takes the name from the seven Electors of the Holy Roman Empire, the seven peaks of the Alpine Karfürsteinen (Electors) mountain range lie on the northeast end of Switzerland’s Lake Walen (Walensee).” TBSL tells even more about the Electors.
