Musicians and Dancers

Catalog No. 1042

Pottery, relief, 0.5L, figural inlaid lid (Perkeo).

Text:
“Musik und Bier, das ist mein Pläsir.”
(Music and beer, that is my pleasure.)

Perkeo (lid figure) was an 18th-century dwarf who served as both court jester and keeper of the royal wine keg in Heidelberg. Despite his size, he was reportedly quite a prodigious drinker and, according to legend, his death came about when he mistakenly drank a glass of water.

This stein exists in two virtually identical versions numbered 1042 and 11042 (presumably later). Sale prices tend to be in the same general range for both.

Price Ranges
Full-color: $60-$80
Ltd-color: $50-$70
