~ Auf's trink'n kriagt ma' Schneid ~
The Bayrisch (Bavarian dialect) verse is self explanatory on this Jugendstil (youth style = modern art) stein made by J P Thewalt and decorated by Theodor Schmidt, ca early 1900's.
Auf's trink'n kriagt ma' Schneid
und a' Kraft auf's guate ess'n
und an Humor kriagt a' dazua
kannst d' Sorgen leicht vergess'n.
Upon drinking one creates energy
and a power for good eating
and with humor one can also acquire
the ability to easily forget sorrow.
