Catalog No. 1088
Pottery, relief, 1.0L, inlaid lid.
“Tages Arbeit, Abends Gäste, saure Wochen, frohe Feste.”
(Daily work, evening guests, sour weeks, merry feasts.)
Text is taken from a song entitled “Der Schatzgräber” (The Treasure Hunter), written in 1797 by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
This stein exists in two virtually identical versions numbered 1088 and 11088 (presumably later). Sale prices tend to be in the same general range for both.
