|From the scene it appears that the difficult choice was not whether to go hunting or drinking, but rather which of the two men the barmaid would choose. The large etched and relief stein is marked with the "TP" logo of Johann Peter Thewalt and "Germany 1433" ca. 1900.|
Heute wird kein Hahn mehr gespannt,
nehmt, statt der Büchse, den Masskrug zur Hand.
No more (gun) hammers will be cocked today,
instead of the gun, take the beer stein into your hand.
