Porcelain mug with the emblem 1.Geb.Div (1st German Mountain Division) in the form of a white edelweiss flower on a black shield and the inscription EDELWEIß. On the other hand, an edelweiss is also shown, but here in the form of an emblem on a mountain cap.

The stripes on the top of the mug can be black or black-white-red, depending on the batch of issue.

Mugs with such an image really existed. We offer a quality copy for domestic use and, undoubtedly, a good gift for friends!

The mug is a decoration of its time and can be used in reenactment, filming and expositions. It weighs approximately 300 g and holds 330 ml of liquid. The diameter is 8 cm, the height is almost 10 cm. The inscriptions are applied by hot decalcification (paint is injected into the surface at high temperature), this is not a cheap stencil. The inscriptions are fixed securely and can be washed in a dishwasher.

At the bottom there is a copy of the manufacturer brand: H&G Selb. Bavaria Heinrich 1940. Franz Heinrich worked as a porcelain artist. In 1896, he built a muffle furnace in his parents' house in Selb, and since 1901 he began to produce porcelain. Then he developed his business and the Heinrich Selb factory became one of the largest porcelain producers in Germany. F. Heinrich died in 1928, but his company continued to live and brought together about 800 people in the early 1970s.
