~ Mir sagen nix danach ~
The verse in Bayrisch (Bavarian Dialect) is a conversation between two drinking buddies. One says "Let's drink to that." and the other says "I'll take a snuff to that." The 1/2 L. stoneware stein was made by Marzi & Remy ca. beginning of 1900's and designed by and marked "M. Mandl".
Mir sagen nix danach,
mir dazu u. fragen nix schnupfa'
höchstens drauf a' Pris' Tabak
We say nothing to it,
we ask nothing afterwards,
at most we snuff a pinch of tobacco to that.
