When men were selected (‘loten’) to become soldiers during the turn of the 20th century, by way of evidence the families of the 'lotelingen' were given a glass walking stick.
During the military service of the loteling this was hung in a visible place, for example above a fireplace or in another visible place in the house.
This served as a notification for the visitors that in this house a man was fighting at the front.


Upon the soldier’s return, the glass stick was ritually broken.
If the stick remained in one piece this meant that the soldier had died at the front.
However, because this stick was so unique, it was often not broken; only small pieces were broken off at the bottom of the stick.
Except for some small pieces broken off, this glass soldier’s stick is in perfect condition.
