~ Ännchen von Tharau ist’s, die mir gefällt ~
These are the first two lines of a popular 17th century song of the legendary Anna Neander from Tharau in East Prussia. The stein is etched and similar to "JWR" marked "Germany 1271 D 4" ca. 1900.
Ännchen von Tharau
ist’s die mir gefällt,

Sie ist mein Leben,
mein Gut und mein Geld
Annie from Tharau
is that which is dear to me.

She is my life,
my wealth and my treasure.
