Catalog No. 768

Pottery, etched, 0.5L, pottery lid.

Text:
“O Menschenkind dien hoher Mut, tut in der Kneipe selten gut.”
(Oh people, your high spirits rarely do any good in a tavern.)
“Wie mancher tät stolz herein spazieren und kroch hinaus auf allen vieren.”
(How many walked in proudly and left on all fours.)

The individual elements forming the image on this stein are take from a more elaborate scene originally painted by Heinrich Schlitt (1849-1923), part of an 1890 mural that once graced the Wiesbaden Ratskeller, but was sadly destroyed in World War II.

Price Range: $100-$150
