~ Viel Feind, viel Ehr ~
The design on this Jugendstil (youth style = modern art) stein represents Imperial Germany Schwarz-Weiß-Rot (black-white-red), Bavaria Blau-Weiß (blue-white) and Austria-Hungary Schwarz-Gold (black-gold) joining against the rest of world going into WWI, ca. 1914.
Viel Feind, viel Ehr. Plenty of enemies, plenty of honor.
