Flirting Scene

Catalog No. 969

Pottery, etched and relief , 0.5L, pewter lid.

“Mädle ruck, ruck, ruck an meine grüne Seite,
i hab di gar so gern, i kann di leide.”

(Girl, move, move, move to my favorite side,
I love you so much, I like you.)

Text is the first two lines of a Swabian folk song dating to the early 19th century — author unknown. The somewhat obscure reference in the text to “my favorite (or best) side” is intended to mean where the heart is.
