Gnomes with Saying

Catalog No. 1366

Pottery, threaded relief, 0.5L, pewter lid.

Text:
“§11: Es wird weiter gesoffen.”
(§11: The drinking will continue.)

The “§11” in the text makes reference to the Bier-Comment (beer code) of Heidelberg University, which begins with paragraph 11. Paragraphs 1 through 10 are left blank and are generally presumed to be the Biblical ten commandments. Paragraph 11 of the Heidelberg code reads; “Es wird fortgesoffen,” which is often (if loosely) translated as “Keep on drinking.” The message on this stein, though phrased somewhat differently, could easily be translated in the same manner.

Price Range: $90-$125
