|~ Ein Wichtel schlürft am Fahs gemach ~|
|The amusing scene depicted on this stein shows two gnomes trying to drink at the same time from one tap on the beer barrel. The stein was made by Mettalch, mold #1526/601 ca. the 1890's.|
Ein Wichtel schlürft am Fahs gemach
es schmeck ihm ganz famos
wie auch der andere ziehen mag
er bringt ihn doch nicht los.
A gnome slurped from the barrel gently
it tasted to him quite splendid.
As the other tries to draw (a drink),
He can not get rid of him.
