Design attributed to Ludwig Foltz II.

Text:
“Kein größer Gut als froher Muth.”
(There is no greater possession than a happy disposition.)
“Nach Hetzen u. Jagen, ein Trunk mit Behagen.”
(After chasing and shooting, a drink is a pleasure.)
“Das Küssen in Ehren, dem Jäger nicht zu wehren.”
(An honorable kiss cannot be refused the hunter.)
“Uns schenkt Gott einen sanften Tod”
(God blesses us with a gentle death.)

An early half-liter version of this stein exists with the same applied relief scenes, but with varying coloration and a different lid inlay. Similarly configured steins are known to have also been produced by other factories and in some cases may be difficult to distinguish from the early Mettlach pieces.
