    My partner got me this for my birthday, which is in a few days (but we'll not be together that day).
    Following photos go around it. You read it like a ribbon wrapping around the bottle from top to bottom.

    I'm curious about its age and contents? I'm unable to read it (Germanic), but it's a great little bottle with an awesome colour.

    Can anyone translate it?

    Cool bottle, bear! Type it out, and I'll check the translation tomorrow.

    looks German to me. 1860s or 70s. a lot of European stuff is coming over to the states lately .

    I've got one of those, and I know that I once knew what it held, but I can't remember anymore unfortunately. Can you type out what it says? I believe it was a German product that was sold in many different countries. I'm not sure if it was ever sold on this side of the Atlantic but I think it at least made its way to England.

    Bear. Type in German to English translation on bing, and a dictionary will come up, and you can translate the wording from that. I tried it and it works great, just couldn't read what was on your bottle Auh gu hosen gu schiezen literally translates to did you shi- your pants in English, I probably slaughtered the German, but you can get the idea.

    The best I could find was, the imperial privileged borough of Altona's wonder miracle.
