    Carved from wood and I'm not 100% it is trench art.

    Not military IMO. Slightly naughty stick handle, there was a fashion for such risque items in the late 19th century, so dating is probably about right.

    It's definitely unique...Perhaps made by a member of one of the many civilian Wander/AlpenVereine...he's an alpine mountaineer, isn't he?

    I guess its hard to see in photos but the mans in a uniform with sword. I have owned some German regimental steins like this risqué that is.

    At least she kept her shoes on.....The little tinker.

    I thought it was a type of resin tbh. It looks like it's got a casting seam up the guys trouser leg and the material looks 'plasticky', but hey ho, a saucy little piece whatever.

    The wood looks to me to be black forest and the uniform looks like some of the Franco Prussian era uniforms. I'm no expert just guessing
