Drinker and Nun

Catalog No. 1129

Pottery, relief, 1.5L, figural lid (knight).

Text:
“In Hoffnung schweben macht süss daß Leben.” (some versions)
(Living with hope makes life sweet.) “Wenn Wein eingeht, geht Wik aus.” (all versions)
When wine enters, sense goes out.

Note that the earliest versions of this stein (below center) had text around the top band that was later deleted. Those with only one text band exist in two virtually identical versions numbered 1129 and 11129 (presumably later). Sale prices tend to be in the same general range for both.

Price Ranges
Full-color: $90-$125
Ltd-color: $75-$100
