Bowling Pin

Catalog No. 1132

Pottery, figural, 0.5L.
Found both with and without a pewter lid ring.

Text:
“Dein Glück u. Stolz: glatte Bahn, gut Holz.”
(May you have luck and glory: smooth path, good wood.)
“Alle neun!”
(All nine!)

The phrases Gut Holz and Alle Neun are a common German bowling expressions meaning “good luck” and “strike” respectively.

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

This stein exists in two virtually identical versions numbered 1132 and 11132 (presumably later). Sale prices tend to be in the same general range for both.

See also No. 1131.

Price Range: $175-$250
