“Hoch Bayern und Pfalz.”
(Long live Bavaria and the Palatinate.)
The central figure on this stein is Bavaria, the female personification of the Bavarian state, the depiction here is taken from a bronze statue at the entrance to Munich’s Ruhmeshalle (Hall of Fame), commissioned by Ludwig I in the mid-19th century. Side images depict Krieg and Friede, personifications of war and peace, respectively.
The Palatinate (Pfalz), referenced in the text, is a region in southwestern Germany that operated in union with Bavaria for more than five centuries prior to the end of World War I.
