Tavern Scene

Catalog No. 1056

Pottery, relief, 2.0L, pewter lid, signed “KB”.

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