(Clink your glasses brothers, that’s what we love.
Never shall our friendship be clouded.)

In Germany, a student in the gymnasium (prep school), before entering the university, is called a Frosch, or frog, which probably accounts for the depiction of students as frogs on this stein.

This stein exists in two virtually identical versions numbered 1176 and 11176 (presumably later). Sale prices tend to be in the same general range for both.
