Bowling Symbols

Catalog No. 423

Pottery, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid.
Exists with music box in base (add 20%).

Text:
“Gut Holz”
(Good Wood)
“Kegler schiebe alle neun, lasse nur den Pudel sein.
Beim kegeln nicht vergessen, trink auch unterdessen!”

(Bowler push all nine, leave only the poodle (gutterball) alone.
When bowling don’t forget, have a drink as well!)

The first text string (i.e., Gut Holz) is an idiomatic German expression often seen on bowling steins that effectively means “good luck”.

The centrally depicted pig (or Schwein) is German symbolism for good luck, or in this case a strike (alle neun).
