~ Weg mit den Grillen und Sorgen ~
This is a cute transfer and painted Mettlach stein #280. These were sent out as blanks and decorated off premises and since VBM had no control over the final product will not have a VBM decor number, but quite often the decorator's logo. The verse is the first line and title of a student song written by Siegfried August Mahlmann in 1797.
Weg mit den Grillen und Sorgen. Away with the crickets (low spirits) and worries.
