~ Alpenglüh'n und Edelweiss ~
Here's a nice Alpine verse and drinking scene on this relief stein marked only "214", ca. 1900.
The Edelweiss (noble white) is an Alpine flower.
Alpenglüh'n und Edelweiss
sind des sähnen Steigerpreis.
Hohe Berge, frischer Trunk
halten Leib und Seele jung.
The Alps' glistening and Edelweiss
are the rewards for the climber.
High mountains, fresh drink
keep life and spirit young.
