Traditional beer stein, silver, gilded, with a cylindrical, slightly tapering upward body, with a hinged lid, smooth handle-curl, with niello floral ornamentation in 16th century style and four round medallions, two depicting Moscow's architectural sights. The Russian proverb is engraved along the stein top edge: ПИВО НЕ ДИВО И МЕДЪ НЕ ХВАЛА А ВСЕМЪ ГОЛОВА ЧТО ЛЮБОВЪ ДОРОГА (literal translation: "Beer is no wonder, copper is not a blessing, but love is highly valued").
