|This relief stein probably by Marzi & Remy has an inscription at the upper lip "Gewidmet von den Kriegern von 1870/71 zur Erinnerung an der silberne Hochzeit 1899" (Given by the soldiers of 1870/71 in remembrance on the silver (25th anniversary) celebration 1899). This stein was a present to a military railroad person that had served for Germany in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870/71 and is ca. 1899.|
Mit Volldampf voraus
allzeit treu für Kaiser und Reich.
With full steam ahead
always true to Emperor and Empire.
