~ Bei einem frischen Trunk ~
This etched stein is by Matthias Girmscheid marked "742 3" ca. 1900 and shows scenes of merrymaking with an appropriate verse. The scenes are exactly the same as those on Mettlach stein #1527(See below). As with numerous copies, this Mettlach version is the original because it it signed by Charles Warth (CW) and the subject stein has no signature. The verse does not appear on the Mettlach version.
Bei einem frischen Trunk,
bleibt das Leben jung.
With a fresh drink,
life remains young.

Mettlach #1527
