~ Semper Paratus - Allzeit bereit ~
The verses on the stein are in Latin and are translated here into German and then to English. The two steins on the front are labeled "G S" (Gebruder Spaten - Spatenbräu) and "H B" (Hofbräu), the famous Munich beers. This is a fairly rare stein marked with the Metlach logo and mold number 2004 and dated 1890. It does not appear in any of the Mettlach catalogs and was probably a special order.
