Antique German Mettlach Schlitt Stein # 2065 Barmaid & Dutch Councilman Cavalier. The ceramic beer stein with amazing details. The stein has an inlaid lid and a metal figural thumb-rest, and is signed in the design by Heinrich Schlitt. It depicts a meeting between a barmaid and a cavalier, and a message in German reads “Kannst du trinken, kannst du lieben thu’s nicht morgen, thu es heut. Gutes Werk auf Morgen schieben hat schon mancher Thor bereut” (If you can drink, if you can love, don’t do it tomottow, do it today. Good work postponed until tomorrow has already been repented by many fools.) Stein is approximately 14” high by approximately 6” wide. Mettlach produced steins between 1885 and 1910.
