A special order version of this stein exists, produced for the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair, replacing some of the edelweisse on one side with an image of a Tyrolean castle, along with text reading “Tyrol in St. Louis” (see detail, below right). Additional D&B steins known to have been produced for the Fair include Nos. 268, 366, 406, 456, 458 and 575.
