|~ Das bin ich meiner Gesundheit schuldig ~|
|The verse on this stein is completed by the imagery on the stein. It attributes good health to eating well and drinking the best beer and wine. The stein is marked "VB" (Villeroy & Boch), mold #406, and dated 1892. The stein was decorated by Friedrich van Hauten & Springmann of Bonn.|
Das bin ich meiner Gesundheit schuldig
This is what I owe my health to.
The best (of beer, etc.)
|The designer of this glass stein with hand enameled decor, ca. 1900, seems to have a different idea on being healthy. The four leaf clover and clover bloom on this seems to imply that good health is just a matter of luck.|
