~ Sagst Maß, halten sei schwer ~
Don't hold back, just go for it seems to be the sentiment of the verse on this relief stein marked with the logo of Merkelbach & Wick and "1121 G", ca. 1900.
Sagst Maß,
halten sei schwer,
machs leicht,
trink sie leer.
If you speak with propriety,
then constraint is difficult,
make light of it,
drink it to empty.
