~ Christus hatt uns erlöhset ~
This modern glass stein is a reproduction of a stein originally dated 1699 and was made as a souvenir of a museum, ca. post WW II. The verse with archaic spelling and print is an analogy of the pelican nurturing its young with its beak as Christ according to the scriptures nurtured humanity with his blood.
Christus hatt uns erlöhset
mitt seinen Blut
gleich wie der Pelican
seinen Zungen thut.
Christ has redeemed us
with his blood
like the pelican
does with his tongue.
