~ Wo kuhl und hell der Keller ist ~
Here is a self explanatory verse on a stein characteristic of Adolph Diesinger manufactory, ca. 1900. The gnome on the front scene is turning back the clock on this Feier Abend (fair = celebration evening).
Wo kuhl und hell der Keller ist,
da ist mein Thron ein dunkles Fass.
Where the cellar is cool and bright.
a dark barrel is my throne.
