Munich Souvenir

Catalog No. 544

Pottery, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid.

Text:
“Gruß aus München”
(Greetings from Munich)
“Die alten Deutschen tranken noch eins ehe sie gingen.”
(The old Germans drank one more before they left.)
“Geliebt, getrunken, gesungen, so wie die Alten die Jungen.”
(Loved, drank, sang, as did the old so do the young.)

Created as the coat-of-arms or archival seal of Munich in 1239, the centrally depicted Münchner Kindl (Munich Child) has evolved from a hooded monk standing in front of Munich’s gate to a charming child and symbol of the city.
