SMS Prinz Adalbert ("His Majesty's Ship Prince Adalbert") was an armored cruiser built in the early 1900s for the German Kaiserliche Marine (Imperial Navy), named after Prince Adalbert of Prussia, former Commander-in-Chief of the Prussian Navy. She was the lead ship of her class. At the outbreak of World War I in July 1914, Prinz Adalbert was brought into front-line service with the fleet. She was assigned to the IV Scouting Group. On 23rd October 1915 the ship was steaming some 20 miles west of Libau, en route to her patrol area, in company with a pair of destroyers when she was intercepted by allied submarines. A spread of torpedoes were fired at a range of approximately 1,200 m (1,300 yd), detonating the ship's ammunition magazine. The massive explosion destroyed the ship, which sank immediately with the loss of 672 crew. There were only three survivors. The sinking was the greatest single loss of life for the German Baltic forces during the war. This is a splendid Imperial German Bier Stein of a Sailor who served on the ship before WW1. The porcelain has no damage or chips and its colourful art work depicts a Naval battle scene and crossed flags. The rim of the top of the stein is marked with details of the ship in German text. The imagery in the banner panels of the stein has passages of German text which roughly translates to ‘In Memory Of Service On Board SMS Prinz Adalbert 1905-1908’ . The top of the stein has a pewter / white metal hinged cover fixed to the top of the stein’s handle. The cover has crisp foliate embossed wave decoration and cast figure of an Imperial German sailor in uniform with Kaiserliche Marine flag. Interestingly the base of the stein has a concealed lithopane panel which can only be viewed when held up to the light and viewed from the open end i.e when drinking the last dregs of the beer content . The crisp colourful panel depicts an ‘Officer in Uniform and his lady’. The stein is clean and untarnished both inside and out and would make a superb display / conversation piece.
