German Imperial Naval Tankard, Ship Went Down At J

Great looking tankard to crew members of the Imperial Battleship, S.M.S. POMMERN, this ship was lost a few years later during the famous WW1 naval battle of Jutland . Tankard has some wonderfull design fetures such as the naval persons in 2D relife ,as is the head on the handle. Around the printed ship design the tankard is hand painted, names of the crew are on both sides, makes me wonder how many did re-enlisted when WW1 began to be back with there ship. Going all around the metal lid are naval battle picture, but im afraid the top feature has gone to time, a gun perhaps? No other damage to this item, rest is in wonderfull condition, maker marked impressed to the china bottom.
