|~ Das gelungene Kartenkunststück ~|
|This young maiden is showing a card trick and the gentlemen are eating it up which I expect they would be doing without the card trick. The etched stein is probably by Matthias Girmscheid and marked "Germany 4" and mold number "1259", ca. 1900.|
Das gelungene Kartenkunststück.
Ein fröhliches Lied, ein gutes Glas Bier,
ein liebliches Mädel, das lob' ich mir.
The successful card trick.
A happy song, a good glass of beer,
a lovely maiden, I like nothing better.
