~ Beim selten Trunk aus diesem Humpen ~
This 2 L stein filled several times could cause a large bill, but credit cards are not disdained anymore. The relief stein is reminiscent of Gerz - Gres Rhenana and marked with only a mold number 1378, ca. 1900.
Beim selten Trunk
aus diesem Humpen
vergiss der Zeche Tilgung nicht,
verhaßt ist jedem Wirt das Pumpen
zuhist du macht er ein froh Gesicht.
When taking a rare drink
from this stein
don't forget to pay the bill,
every innkeeper hates to give a loan,
(but) paying gives him a happy face.
