Catalog No. 1178

Pottery, relief, 0.5L, pewter lid.

Text:
“Keinen Tropfen im Becher mehr,
und der Beutel schlaff und leer,
lechzend Herz und Zunge.
Angethan hat’s mir der Wein,
deiner Äuglein heller Schein,
Lindenwirthin 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.)

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