~ Hier mach' halt ~
Just a nice beer drinking motto with gnomes entitiled "Das Gnomenfest" (The Gnome Festival). The base impressed "Germany 1046" and signed "KB" on the body. The stein was probably made by Matthias Girmscheid and designed by Karl Beuler ca. 1900.
Hier mach' halt,
Du liebe Seele,
Und erquicke
Herz und Kehle.
Here stop,
dear soul,
and refresh
(both) heart and throat.
