~ Trunkener Mund spricht aus Herzen's Grund ~
The verse is self explanatory on this blue/gray, salt-glazed, stoneware stein, ca. 1900. The salt-glazed, stoneware inlay on this type of stein is fairly uncommon, but did cut the cost since pewter was more expensive than clay at the time.
Trunkener Mund spricht
aus Herzen's Grund.
A drunken mouth speaks
from the heart (in truth).
The porcelain stein marked with the logo of Hauber & Reuther (on the lid) and mold number 155 on the base, ca. 1900, has the same verse.
