The stein is complete; there is a crack in the wall near the handle. The stein is cylindrical in shape; in cross-section, it is tapered at the top, with a straight top. The bottom has a wide support point; the base is slightly recessed and the center is sunk into a slightly off-center dome. It is fitted with a massive vertical handle, the ends of which are folded downwards; the upper end rests on the wall, under the rim, while the other rests on the last two bulges of the base, and it has a pinched tail ; The molded and engraved decoration. The engraved decoration features a royal Swedish motif. The molded decoration takes the form of three domed annular bulges superimposed on the base of the wall, tapering towards the sock. The engraved decoration is found on the outer wall adjacent to the handle: it consists of royal symbols, namely a G made of two mirrored open loops, the one at the top surrounding the Roman numerals III; there is a royal crown above the letter, the whole set in the center of a laurel wreath, made of two leafy branches with pearls and linked to the base.
