“Es lebe was auf Erden stolziert in grüner Tracht,
die Wälder u. die Felder, der Jäger u. die Jagd!”
(Long live he who struts on earth in green apparel,
the woods and the fields, the huntsman and the hunt!)
Text is the from a poem written by Wilhelm Müller in 1822 and set to music in 1823 by Konradin Kreutzer. The opening line makes reference to the Förster (forest ranger) and his traditional green uniform (Trachtenanzug).
This stein exists in two virtually identical versions numbered 1192 and 11192 (presumably later). Sale prices tend to be in the same general range for both.
