This body style served as the base for a variety of different central and secondary decorations. Prices can vary significantly depending on subject-matter.

The hexagram below the central image, often mistaken to be the Jewish Star of David, is actually a German brewing symbol seen frequently on beer steins produced through the early 20th century.
