~ Ohne Bock und ohne Bier ~
This Jugendstil (youth style = modern art) stein is marked "716 Germany" and with the Albert Jakob Thewalt mark of ca. early 1900's. The verse is born out by the scene and an obvious truism. See translation "Bock mit Rettig" to see the connection between bock beer and a ram.
Ohne Bock und ohne Bier
wär das nicht ein Jammer hier?
Without (a) ram (bock beer) and without beer
would it not be a calamity (misery) here?
