I picked this up at a garage sale because it looked interesting. It reads AUS KUHLEM FASS. MUS UND KRAFT! on one side and HOCH EDLES NASS. TRAUBENSAFT GIEBT ON THE OTHER. On the bottom it says 1621 4L and what looks to be pg. Any information would be much appreciated, can't seem to find anything about it online, thanks.

    AUS KUHLEM FASS. MUS UND KRAFT! translates to FROM BARREL KUHLEM. PULP AND FORCE
    TRAUBENSAFT GIEBT translates to GRAPE JUICE GIEBT

    The order is important here, I think.
    There is a top line and a bottom line.
    The top line might read:
    "Hoch edles Nass aus kuehlem Fass."
    As AR8JASON & packrat-place note this is a German saying that means something like: A toast to fine wine from a cool barrel.
    The bottom line: Traubensaft gibt Mut und Kraft.
    The grape's juice gives courage and strength.

    Underneath the digit 4 and the other mark is letter "Q" written in the Suetterlin German script.

    For the identity I'd suggest this site, but I've not had much luck so far.
