Beer Garden Scene

Catalog No. 1074

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

Text:
“Bier u. frohes Lied macht nie Lebensmüd.”
(Beer and a happy song never let life become tiresome.)

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 1074 and 11074 (presumably later). Sale prices tend to be in the same general range for both.

Price Ranges
Full-color: $60-$80
