~ Ein kluger Zecher steckt sich fein ~
 
The slick drinker needs to make sure he has the key to the house before he leaves, so he can be sure to get back in early in the morning before anyone else awakens. This nice relief stein was probably made by Marzi & Remy mold number 249 ca. 1900. Also see translation: Ein wackerer Zecher steckt sich fein 
 
Ein kluger Zecher steckt sich fein,
den Schlüßel vom Haus früh Morgens ein.
A clever boozer hides away
the key to the house early in the morning.
