~ Ob Ritter, ob Knapp, ob Adelsmann ~
This might be called "beer socialism" on this etched stein marked with the "TP" logo of Johann Peter Thewalt and mold number 1765, ca. late 1800's.
Ob Ritter,
ob Knapp,
ob Adelsmann,
ein jeder fröhlich zechen kann.
Whether knight,
whether apprentice,
whether noble man,
each can gladly drink (his share of beer).
