~ Mein Herr! welcher von uns Beiden ~
This is a humorous verse on a porcelain inlay about two portly gentlemen on a narrow bridge trying to decide which one needs to get out of the other's way in order to cross. The pressed glass stein is marked with the "crown and SG" of the Sächsische Glasfabrik ca. early 1900's. See Chris Wheeler's Stein Marks for more information on Sächsische Glasfabrik.
Mein Herr! welcher von uns Beiden
weicht dem Andern aus.
Sir! which one of the two of us
(needs) make way for the other?
