|~ Wer nicht liebt das edle Bier ~|
|This reminds me of my childhood because one of my German grandmother's favorite sayings was "Let's have another Schluck (sip, gulp, mouthful)" of you know what. Whoever didn't go along with that would obviously wind up as a poor wretch. The stein with the twisted vine handle by Matthias Girmscheid is is marked only 738 on the bottom.|
Wer nicht liebt das edle Bier,
bleibt ein armer Schlucker hier.
Whoever doesn't like the noble beer
will remain a poor wretch here.
|The relief stein below is s marked with the Reinhold Merkelbach logo and "190 T" ca. 1900.|
