|Mudlarking Find Georg Kreuzber Stoneware Bottle|
The rather crude and imperfect incised stamp has a circular inscription 'Apollinaris-Brunnen M-W'. Inside appears a boaty logo and below 'Georg Kreuzberg, Ahrweiler, Rheinpreussen'.

Georg Kreuzberg looks like a man about town. He developed the springs in the area, building the first bath house with hotel attached at Bad Neuenahr hot spring. He had a penchant for sequoia and started a bit of civic planting, some of the redwoods still stand today.
