~ Der Durst gar groß, der Liter klein ~
These things could be turned around, but only in one's mind and maybe that would be a good thing. The salt-glazed stoneware stein is probably from a Regensburg factory, ca. late 1800's.
Der Durst gar groß, der Liter klein,
ich mein es sollt grad umkehr sein.
The thirst very large, the liter small,
I think it should be really turned around.
