Catalog No. 402
Pottery or stoneware, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid, signed “GK”.
“Keinen Tropfen im Becher mehr,
und der Beutel schlaff u. leer.”
(No more drops in the beaker,
and the purse is slack and empty.)
Text is from the poem “Die Lindenwirtin”, written by Rudolph Baumbach in 1876 and set to music in 1878 by Franz Wilhelm Abt. The poem honors Ännchen Schumacher (1860-1935), perhaps the most famous landlady/tavern keeper in German history and a popular figure with German students.
