You are ordering this antique, German made, 1liter, pewter lidded beer stein in excellent condition for age. Mold number on base is 593.
A search of the Beer Stein Library for this mold number or "Gambrinus, " or the saying on the front of the stein, "Festzug des Konigs Gambrinus" does not return any hits. The key to identification is the matching of the handle design to the Westerwald Beer Stein Handle Gallery as MG 85. This suggests that this is a currently uncatalogued Matthias Girmscheid.
Saying on the front translates loosely to, The pageant of King Gambrinus. Features our favorite beer symbol, King Gambrinus admiring his creation in a raised, frothing vessel while revelers dance and play music and the beer flows freely from steins and a keg. 11.5" tall with a 4.5" base diameter.
