~ Die Deutschen sollen Liebe ~
The bust of Germania on the front of the stein is telling the German people what to like and how to behave on this Marzi & Remy relief, stoneware stein marked "424 0", ca. 1900.
Die Deutschen sollen Liebe,
Wein und Gerstensaft hoch preisen
und sollen bied're Männer
sein in Thaten und in Weise.
The Germans should highly prize
love, wine and barley juice (beer)
and should be honorable men
in deed and manner.
