    Default Help identifying era of Plate and translation

    Hi, I picked up this ornate, pewter wall hanger of Heidelberg. I am not sure if this is pre, post or during WW2. It is a very nice heavy and about 14 1/2 inch in diameter. I was told it was brought back from a vet when he was stationed in Germany.
    Also, if I could get a translation, it would be greatly appreciated.

    "Old Heidelberg (City)

    You City
    rich of honor
    at the Neckar (river)
    and at the Rhine (river too)
    No other

    The text says:

    "Alt Heidelberg, du feine,
    du Stadt an Ehren reich,
    am Neckar und am Rheine,
    kein' and're kommt dir gleich.
    "

    ...meaning:

    "Old Heidelberg, you fine one,
    you city rich with honors,
    by the Neckar and the Rhine,
    none other is your equal.
    "

    It's a souvenir piece. I cannot comment on age.
