Procession to the Tavern

Catalog No. 687

Pottery or stoneware, relief, 2.0L, pewter lid.

�Ein frischer Trunk mit Gerstensaft, ist�s was Menschen fr�hlich macht.�
(A fresh drink with barley juice is what makes people happy.)

The procession�s destination in this case is the Krug zum gr�nen Kranze (Green Wreath Tavern, immortalized in a drinking song entitled �Br�derschaft� (Fraternity) written in 1821 by Wilhelm M�ller and set to music by Carl Georg Peter Gr�dener.

The ��11� visible seen below the central image 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.�
