~ Dem Deutschen mancher Feind erliegt ~
There are some things that are unconquerable as claimed on this light relief stoneware stein marked with the Merkelbach & Wick logo and "474 D" ca. 1900.
Dem Deutschen mancher Feind erliegt,
jedoch den Durst nie besiegt.
The Germans conquered many foes,
however they never could conquer thirst.
