Hunter Frog

Catalog No. 836

Pottery, figural, 0.5L (circa 1960).

�Willst du nicht dem Frosche gleich im Sumpf versinken,
steige in Gambrunus Reich wo volle Humpen winken.�

(If you don�t want to sink into the mud like a frog,
enter Gambrinus� kingdom where full steins are beckoning.)

Text reference is to Gambrinus, �the king of beer�, long a universal symbol of beer and brewing. It has been suggested that the character may be drawn from the claimed real-life inventor of hopped malt beer, Jan Primus (Johann I), a 13th-century Belgian Duke and President of the Brussels Guild of Brewers.

Reproduced from J.W. Remy mold No. 973.

Price Range: $40-$60
