Landsknechte with Saying

Catalog No. 1168

Pottery, threaded relief, 0.5L, pewter lid.

“Wer nicht liebt, trinkt u. singt,
es nie zu wahrer Freude bringt.”

(He who does not love, drink and sing,
never achieves true happiness.)

Landsknechte were feudal serfs used for military purposes by their masters. These “soldiers” were often traded between landowners and were, in a sense, the equivalent of modern mercenaries, with the important difference that they were not free to choose their employer.
