Student with Fencing Foil

Catalog No. 1336

Stoneware, transfer, 0.5L, pewter lid.

Text:
“Im Bier und Rettigsaft, steckt ewig junge deutsche Kraft.”
(In beer and radish juice, lies forever young German strength.)

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, fencing was a popular activity among upper-class German and Austrian students, and dueling scars such as the one depicted on the cheek of the student at the right were seen as a badge of honor.

The “radish juice” in the text makes reference to the large white radishes that are a favorite beer accompaniment in the Bavarian Alps.

Price Range: $90-$125
