~ Nur ja kein Wasser nicht ~
Here is a whimsical frog doing all the bad things, but jokingly staying away from water because it bothers his stomach. He's probably telling the server to hold the water. The incised stein with wrinkled lid is marked with the logo of "Merkelbach & Wick" and numbering "1 171", ca. 1900.
Nur ja kein Wasser nicht
nein, nein, das mag ich nicht.
Mein schwacher Magen
kann nicht vertragen
Certainly not any water
no, no, that I don't like.
My weak stomach
cannot tolerate it.
