“Knights and Minstrels”

Catalog No. 138

Pottery or stoneware, relief, 3.0L, pewter lid.

Text:
“Mässig trinken und Lieder singen
half von je zu guten Dingen.”

(Drinking moderately and singing songs
have always brought good things.)

Although this stein would not appear at first glance to have been intended as platform for the expression of Peter Dümler’s apparent anti-Semitic sentiments, note the heads of the two carrion birds (i.e., vultures) appearing on the sides of the upper decorative band (below right).
