|~ Qušlt dich der Durst mein lieber Sohn ~|
|It would seem to make sense to follow the example of one's elders and have a beer to quench your thirst, but don't overdo it. This light relief stein is marked with the Mettlach logo and mold number 2943 and dated 1907. The 3.6 L stein shown below (Mettlach #2930) is the master stein for this set.|
Qušlt dich der Durst
mein lieber Sohn,
bedenk' die Alten tranken schon.
If thirst torments you
my dear son,
consider what your elders already drank.
|This verse also appears on this Stoneware, relief, 3.6L Mettlach Stein, Catalog # 2930.|
