Philosopher

Catalog No. 971

Pottery, incised and impressed, 0.5 liter, pewter lid.

Text:
“Warum die Betrunkenen schwanken? Ganz einfach ist die Geschicht.
Das Bier erzeugt grosse Gedanken, da kriegt der Kopf’s Übergewicht!”

(Why do the drunks sway? The story is quite simple.
Beer makes you think big thoughts, so the head topples over!)

Central image and text are taken from an illustration by Kaspar Kögler (1838-1923), part of an 1890 mural that once graced the Wiesbaden Ratskeller, but was sadly destroyed in World War II.

Price Range: $75-$100
