This is a phrase from a very popular German drinking song that ends with "eins,
zwei, drei, g'sufa!" (one, two, three, down the hatch!). This song
is probably where the first title of the SCI magazine "der
came from, but was taken out of context and soon recognized as grammatically
incorrect. It should have been "die Gemüthlichkeit", but was instead changed to
the other important word in the phrase, "Prosit", and that's where it remains today.
Gemütlichkeit is one of those German words for which there is not an
exact English equivalent.This Jugendstil (youth style = modern art) stein is marked with the Merkelbach & Wick
logo and "110" ca. early 1900's.
