Renaissance Battle Scene

Catalog No. 1093

Pottery, relief, 3.0L, figural inlaid lid (Perkeo).

Text:
“Hopfen u. Malz, Gott erhalts.”
(Hops and malt, may God preserve them.)

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 1093 and 11093 (presumably later). Sale prices tend to be in the same general range for both.

Price Ranges
Full-color: $150-$225
Ltd-color: $125-$175
