~ Militair-Telegraphen-Schule ~
This dedication is on the pewter lid only. The body appears to be pressed glass and all is original and of the period. The insignia is typical for a royal telegrapher unit. Many times steins were given and received as presents at Christmas time. Note that "Weihnachten" translates literally to "holy nights" and is used for "Christmas".
Named to: P. Goelsch who was the recipient of this stein.
