~ Frisch gewagt ~
It seems like being well prepared and alert is half the success in hunting and serendipity must be the other half. The 3.5 L. stein with transfer and hand painted decor is ca. 1900.
Frisch gewagt,
die Augen offen,
gut gezielt ist halb getroffen.
Lively (and) alert,
(with) eyes open
and a good aim is half of the shot.
