~ Ein freies Leben führen wir ~
This great PUG (printed under glaze) stein is an advertisement for Salvator Beer and shows a happy student astride a 200 liter barrel of Salvator Beer. The stein is marked with the logo of Paul Utzschneider of Saarguemines which was associated with V&B at Mettlach in the mid 1800's and made very similar quality steins, ca. 1900.
Ein freies Leben führen wir
bei einem Faß Salvatorbier!

Nicht verzagt, Brüder singt und trinkt
so lang ein Tropfen Euch noch winkt.
A free life we lead
by a barrel (of) Salvator Beer!

Don't despair, brothers sing and drink
as long as a drop still beckons you.
