~ Aba' des is' schlecht eing(e)schenkt ~
This verse is in Bayrisch (Bavarian dialect) and shows this drinker's disappointment when he blows into his freshly poured stein of beer and only foam comes out. The Jugendstil (youth style = modern art) stein was designed by Max Mandl and has his mark and the mark of the maker Merkelbach & Wick, ca. early 1900's. The pewter lid mount has the mark of Martin Pauson of Munich.
Aba' des is' schlecht eing(e)schenkt! But this is poorly poured!
