Wilhelm I as Roman Emperor

Catalog No. 1274

Pottery, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid.

Text:
“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.
