~ Ein Vogel im Flug ~
The verse is self explanatory on this PUG (printed under glaze) stein probably by the firm of Utzschneider of Sarreguemines, ca. 1900. For more info on this manufactory, see Chris Wheeler's "Stein Marks" website.
Ein Vogel im Flug,
ein Mädel, das klug.
A bird in flight,
(is like) a maiden that's clever.
