The title of the original painting as well as a reproduction of Mort Künstler’s signature are permanently fired near the base of the stein. A “Lithophane” (see-through) picture of General Lee appears in the stein’s base and is revealed when one holds the stein to the light andlooks through it. The heavy cast and antiqued ornamental pewter lid is decorated with embossed stars, cannon balls, swords, “US” and “CS” symbols. A pewter artillery cannon figurine is mounted on the lid. This is a limited edition of only 2,000 pieces. Each stein is registered and individually numbered. The painting featured on this stein is the same as item 4272: Fredericksburg, Virginia, January 20, 1863. It was a period of calm amid the storm of war. Robert E. Lee’s heralded Army of Northern Virginia was in winter camp near Virginia’s Rappahannock River. Weeks before, they had turned back attack after attack. General Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson had made his Headquarters at Moss Neck, a pastoral Virginia plantation near Fredericksburg. On January 20, 1863, Lee and Jackson conducted a review of General J.E.B. Stuart’s cavalry--the troops who held the line along the Rappahannock that winter.
