No chips, cracks or scratches with original red stopper. This is an estate item that was found wrapped and boxed in very old paper so even the red stopper is still in soft, pliable condition.

1908 Frankfurt Turnfest souvenier pewter cup
This is a rare an excellent piece. The emblem appears to be gold plated copper and is showing some wear. The body of the cup is made of pewter with incrediblely detailed relief images of historic places including a statue of a nude woman. What at first appeared to be damage to the top front, now looks to me to be part of the molded design, sort of a Liberty bell crack effect. As you will see from the detailed images, the crack is actually raised up in front. The cup is a little over 5" tall, and 3" across at the top. The sharply embossed mark at the bottom reads;
- SCHELLENBERG'S -
- KAISERMAGAZIN -
Obviously produced by very fine craftsmen of the period.
