Gnomes

Catalog No. 801

Pottery, relief, 1.0L or 0.5L, pewter lid.
Some examples marked “DRGM 250635”.

Text:
“Ein guter Trunk macht Alte jung.”
(A good drink makes old people young.)
“Gerste u. Hopfen geben Wundertropfen.”
(Barley and hops give wondrous drops.)

Capacity variation results from the presence or absence of a recessed base. Both versions have the same external dimensions.

The German patent number DRGM 250635 was awarded to Adolf Diesinger in 1905 for an unusual, though not particularly practical, ceramic hinge (below left) which saw only limited application.
