Bowling Pin

Catalog No. 1131

Pottery, figural, 2.0L

Text:
“Gut Holz”
(Good wood)
“Ein starker Arm, ein sichres Ziel, ein frohes Herz beim Kegelspiel.”
(A strong arm, a sure goal, a happy heart through bowling.)

The first text string (i.e., Gut Holz) is an idiomatic German expression often seen on bowling steins that effectively means “good luck”.

The centrally depicted pig (or Schwein) is German symbolism for good luck, or in this case a strike.
