~ Herrlich auferstanden bist du ~
This is a very patriotic, relief and glazed stein commemorating the founding of the German Empire in 1871. The stein is marked with mold number 1744, ca. late 1800's, made by Reinhold Hanke. Verse is from poem/song by Julius Wolff.
Herrlich auferstanden bist du,
deutsches Reich
keins von allen Landen
ist dir hohen gleich.
Glorious art thou, German Empire,
none of all lands
reaches your height.
