ARTIFACT: This is a great 1956 Cold War USAAF 3918th Supply Squad, 7th Air Division Lithophane Stein from RAF Station Upper Heyford, England. This stein has three major emblem designs on it, one being the Seventh Air division emblem, another being the Strategic Air Command emblem, and the last being the US Air Force. The stein is lithophane, which means that when held up to in the light, a picture is revealed that would otherwise be very difficult or impossible to see. The lithophane on this stein, a naked woman, is on the bottom of the inside of this piece. This stein was presented to one "RUDY."

VINTAGE: Ca. 1956

SIZE: Approximately 10" tall and 4-1/2" in diameter at the base

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Painted and lithophaned ceramic with a nickel plated lid.



ITEM NOTES: This is from a USAF collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VREM17 LAGEX02/17 SVAGEX10/19

CONDITION: 9+ (Near Mint-): Amazing condition! The paint has very little wear on it, the metal is fine and clean, slight cracks on the bottom, but doesn't affect the lithophane picture

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
