~ Leerer Topf und leeres Faß ~
The verse sounds sad, but it looks like the crowd on the front is making up for it on this relief stein without lid marked "GT" for designer Gustav Thinwiebel probably made by Marzi & Remy, ca. 1900.
Leerer Topf und leeres Faß,
leeres Herz, wie hohl klingt das.
Empty jug and empty barrel,
empty heart, how hollow that clinks.
