~ freundl. Erinnerung an den Besuch ~
This relief stein without lid was apparently given to visitors of the firm of Paulus & Thewalt that made stoneware articles for use in science laboratories and apothecaries. Paulus & Thewalt did not make beer steins. This one is marked with the logo of Albert Jacob Thewalt (see: Chris Wheeler's "Stein Marks"), mold number "242 F", "Musterschutz" (copyrighted) and dated 1902. For the translation of the verse on the lower rim, see the translation for  "In mir ist Wahrheit....." .
