Catalog No. 141

Pottery, relief, 2.0L, pewter lid.

�Keinen Tropfen im Becher mehr,
und der Beutel schlaff und leer,
lechzend Herz und Zunge,
angetan hat mirs dein Wein,
deiner �uglein heller Schein,
Lindenwirtin du junge!�

(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,
and your eyes� bright shine,
Linden hostess so young!)

The text on this stein is the first verse 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.

This stein also carries a Thewalt mark.

Same model number applied to a stein displaying Scrollwork with Saying. See also No. 145.
