~ Ein Trunk beim Freund ~
This is a self evident saying on a relief, salt-glazed, stoneware stein, ca. 1900, marked only 1015 on the bottom. This saying is found on many steins with the word Glas (glass) used instead of Trunk (drink). This translates awkwardly into English, but the intent to say that it is a good thing to drink with a friend. Also see translation: "Ein Glas beim Freund ist gut gemeint"
Ein Trunk beim Freund
ist gut gemeint.
A drink with a friend
is well meant.
