Wilhelm I as Roman Emperor

Catalog No. 1274

Pottery, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid.

“Zum hundertjährigen Gedächtnis”
(In memory of the centenary)
“Ich habe nicht mehr Zeit müde zu sein.”
(I do not have time to be tired.)

Emperor Wilhelm I (1797-1888) played a crucial role in modern history in that he presided over the rise of Germany as a great European power in the late 19th century. This memorial stein was introduced in 1897 on the 100th anniversary of his birth.

The second text string is a paraphrase of a frequently quoted sentiment of Wilhelm I, normally stated as “Ich habe keine zeit müde zu sein.” Both have essentially the same meaning.
