~ Zur Erinnerung ~
This salutation is found on many old German beer steins that were purchased or given in remembrance of some special event. This is a porcelain stein with a lithophane ca. 1900.
Note that the line over the consonant "n" makes it become a (double) "nn".
Zur Erinnerung In remembrance (memoriam)
Many times this is found abbreviated as z. Erg. or z. fr. Erg. (zur freundliche Erinnerung -- in friendly remembrance)
