Here's what Reads on the Reinhold Hanke Drinking Mug Stein: (See 9th Photo). Es wohnten die alten Deutschen auf beiden Seiten des Rheins, sie lagen auf Bärenhäuten und tranken immer noch eins.
The old Germans lived on both sides of the Rhine. They laid on bear skins and always drank one after another. The verse is from a German student drinking song called, " Tacitus und die alten Deutschen " which derives its verses from a work of the Roman historian Tacitus in 89 AD called " Germanii " (the Germans).
Sitz ich in froher Zecher Kreise. (I Sit in the Happy Circle of Revelers), written in 1880 by Ludolf Waldmann. This verse is sometimes seen with the word " Germanen " replacing " Deutschen ".The letters "SPQR" on the Roman's shield stands for the Latin phrase, " S enatus P opulus q ue R omanus " ("The Senate and People of Rome"). This was the motto of the Roman Republlic and appeared on Roman buildings, coins and banners and armor of the Roman Legions. It was part of an 1890 mural that once graced the Wiesbaden Ratskeller, but was sadly destroyed in World War II. About Reinhold Hanke the Maker of this Antique Stein Drinking Mug. Founded in the Westerwald town of Höhr in 1868 by Reinhold Hanke , the firm bearing his name is considered by many to have been a pioneer in the Historismus style widely associated with Westerwald steins today. Following Hankes death in 1886, the company was run by his wife until 1901, when it was taken over by his son, August Hanke, who managed operations until his death in 1938, at which point production was effectively terminated. For a brief period beginning in 1911, Hanke joined with several other Höhr-Grenzhausen firms in a joint marketing effort called Steinzeugwerke. In 1901, the Hankes two sons, Carl and August, took over the reins of the company. While Carl handled the marketing end, August, who was a designer, ran the factory. In 1912, they joined forces with S.
Gerz, Reinhold Merkelbach, and Walter Müller to form the marketing firm Steinzeugwerke Höhr-Grenzhausen G. This partnership lasted for a short while.
In 1921, a fire destroyed most of the Hanke factory and limited production. In 1938, after the demise of August, the factory closed. It shoud be noted that Reinhold Hanke was responsible for training many future competitors. Ships Same Day Ordered in a black sealed antique suitcase!
