“Hunter Jug”

Catalog No. 9360

Porcelain, figural, 0.5L.

Text:
“Das ist des Jägers ehrenschild,
dass er beschützt und schirmt sein Wild,
waidmännisch jagt, wie sich’s gehört,
den Schöpfer im Geschöpfe ehrt.”

(It is the hunter’s badge of honor,
to protect and shield his wildlife,
to hunt fairly as one should,
to honor the creator in his creations.)

Text is the first verse from the poem “Waidmannsheil” (Good Hunting), by Oskar von Riesenthal (1830–1898).

Although Bohne cataloged this stein as as “Hunter Jug”, its overall shape and lid inlay make clear that it was modeled to resemble an acorn. Hence, the “figural” designation.

Price Range: $700-$900
