Catalog No. 1056

Pottery, relief, 2.0L, pewter lid, signed �KB� (Anton Killian �Karl� Beuler).

�Lindenwirthin du junge�
(Linden hostess so young)
�Keinen Tropfen im Becher mehr,
und der Beutel schlaff und leer.
Lechzend Herz und Zunge,
angetan hat�s mir dein Wein.�

(No more drops in the beaker,
and the purse is slack and empty.
With a parched heart and tongue,
smitten am I with your wine.)

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 �nnchen Schumacher (1860-1935), perhaps the most famous innkeeper in German history and a popular figure with German students.
