~ Da Spiess is' zum Stech'n ~
This unmarked PUG (printed under glaze) stein shows a rogue or rascal doing his thing in the night and is prepared for all obstacles, ca. 1900.
Da Spieß is' zum Stech'n
und da Mant'l für'n Reg'n
und's Licht daß mid Spitzbuab'n
von weit'n scho' leg'n.
The spear is for stabbing
and the coat for the rain
and the light with the rogue
for that which already lies ahead.
