|The two steins below are strikingly similar in design, but from two different manufacturers. Both show two embracing Renaissance lovers in the center panel, while the side panels feature a German Landsknecht (German mercenary knight) and a Renaissance style lady. The first is a relief stein by Matthias Girmscheid, mold# X33, marked "Germany" ca. 1900.|
das Glück ist mürb.
Bier, Lieb und Wein
lindern Sorg und Pein.
luck is brittle.
Beer, love and wine
alleviate sorrow and pain.
|This stein was made by Simon Peter Gerz. It is 2L with an extended and flared music box base, mold# 866. Only the first line above appears on this stein.|
