Bowling Ball

Catalog No. 1236

Pottery, figural, 0.5L, figural inlaid lid (bowler on pig), ram handle.

�Gut Holz, Kegler�s Gl�ck u. Stolz Glatte Bahn.�
(Good wood, a bowler�s happiness and pride is a smooth lane.)

The term Gut Holz is an idiomatic German expression often seen on bowling steins that effectively means �good luck�.

The two animals that are part of this design both have meaning. The pig (or Schwein) on the lid is German symbolism for good luck, or in this case a strike. The ram (or Bock) that forms the handle is the symbol for Bockbier, a strong dark beer that is the first drawn from the vats in the springtime.
