~ Was leben soll auf Erden ~
It's another obvious revelation that whatever lives on the earth needs water for plants and animals and beer for humans. This is an early Villeroy & Boch PUG (printed under glaze) stein mold #1526 decoration #655 ca. 1880's.
Was leben soll auf Erden,
muß auch begoßen werden.
Whatever shall live on the earth,
must also be moistened (plants, water;humans, beer).
