~ Ein fein Bierchen ist mein Pläßierchen ~
This self explanatory verse rhymes in German and is almost all cognates. NB! German and English are classified as Teutonic languages and both come from Old Norse, the language of the Vikings. The light relief stein is marked only "233 B", but probably made by Merkelbach & Wick around 1900.
Ein fein Bierchen ist mein Pläßierchen. A fine little beer is my dear pleasure.
