Porcelain beer stein features a double handle design with a Bavaria Crest with lions in Bavarian blue. Thumb lift on one side lifts up to release the lid. Domed pewter lid and ornamental thumb lifts.
The large text on the back of this porcelain stein is the perspective of a diehard Bavarian and is in Bavarian dialect. The smaller text below each line is the translation or explanation of the larger text in standard German.
Bavarian: "Fuer alle Preissn, Zuag’roasde und solche de mid oana hand ned dringa kena." Translated: "For all Prussians, citizens not born locally, i.e. who just moved to Bavaria and all of those who with one hand cannot drink."
German: "Fuer alle Menschen noerdlich des Weisswurstaequators, Zugezogene und alle jene welche mit einer Hand nicht trinken koennen." Translated: "For all people north of the White Sausage Equator*, citizens not born locally and all of those who with one hand cannot drink."
*The White Sausage Equator is the River Main, north of which the Bavarian Sausage with sweet mustard - a national meal in Bavaria - is not very common.
This stein is a joke on non-Bavarians, who, according to Bavarians, cannot lift stein with one hand, but must use two
